Removable Appliances


A removable appliance is an orthodontic plate that fits against the teeth, gums and palate. They can perform a number of different functions and are custom made to suit each patient’s specific needs. They can be used to widen the top jaw if it is too narrow, push the front teeth forward, encourage the teeth to grow into better alignment and much more. As they are removable, it is vital that the patient wears their removable appliance as much as possible for it to work.
