Plates, head gear and expansion appliances, among others, are the removable devices used by orthodontists to correct tooth and jaw alignment. Following full-time wearing of these appliances “which can vary anywhere from six months to two years depending on the orthodontist’s recommendation” patients may be required to wear retainers to keep their teeth in the improved position.
Orthodontics, or “braces,” are devices worn on the teeth to improve tooth alignment. They can be helpful for both children and adults. Orthodontics can improve the function of the teeth and the appearance of he smile. Following orthodontic treatment, a retainer is worn to help teeth stay in their new positions. Among the most common retainers are the Hawley type that are fitted at the top and bottom of the mouth.
