Removable Braces

The Midlands Specialist Orthodontists

People often assume that removable braces
are only suitable for children, but in fact
they are versatile and offer a way to get
anchorage from the roof of the mouth which
isn’t as easy to achieve with fixed braces.

Removable braces can be used to address a variety of cases including:

  • Problems with the bite, such as an open bite where there is a noticeable gap between the upper and lower front teeth
  • Keeping the teeth apart while other treatments are being implemented
  • Correcting deep overbites
  • When an upper front tooth is trapped behind the lower teeth

Removable braces are normally made of acrylic with stainless steel wires, and springs may be used too. They are usually discreet and can be removed for important social and professional events.

What To Expect

There may be a short delay while the lab makes your
appliance. Once it’s finished we’ll advise you on how
to clean it. It’s important to understand that you’ll
need to wear your appliance all the time except when
eating (or when cleaning your teeth and appliance)
for it to be effective. As part of your treatment
plan we may need to replace appliances to adjust for
the movement of your teeth.
