Removable Appliances

For some children with certain types of tooth problems, orthodontic treatment should be started before all the adult teeth have erupted.

So if you’re having a removable appliance fitted (sometimes called a ‘plate’) you’ll be getting a head start on that winning smile!

Why do I need it?
Removable appliance treatment usually begins after the four upper front teeth have erupted (ages 7-9) and can be necessary when:

  • upper front teeth protrude
  • lower front teeth protrude
  • teeth are in crossbite
  • upper and /or lower arches are too narrow

The aim is to move your teeth into a position where they will be less prone to injury and to normalise jaw growth.
