In some situations, fixed braces are not the ideal appliances to bring about the required changes to the bite, and a removable brace has to be used. These are essentially used to move limited number of teeth and also for widening of narrow jaws. They are also used in situations to bring about certain required bite changes when it may not be possible with any alternative orthodontic system.

These appliances have a plastic base with custom-made wires and components that have a specific action. Some of these components are used to secure the brace to the teeth.
Often we can design these to be more inconspicuous and invisible to any onlookers.
Removable appliances are very comfortable to wear. Their insertion or removable does not cause any pain.
You will be recommended this option if your orthodontist feels that this may be the best solution for you.
