Removable Orthodontic Braces Wandsworth, London

“Advancements in braces make the old style ‘train tracks’ a thing of the past”

A removable appliance is made from a plastic plate with wires coming from the sides. These grip the teeth to keep the brace in place. Removable appliances have a limited number of uses, mainly because they are restricted to moving single teeth and widening either the upper or lower arches. They are not precision appliances and therefore cannot be used for complicated or fine tooth movements.


About removable appliances

For a removable appliance to be effective, it must be worn all the time except when playing sports and for cleaning. In the initial period after a removable appliance is fitted it might feel strange because the plastic plates tend to occupy a bit of space in your mouth, but you will soon get used to it. The mouth also tends to produce more saliva than usual because the brain interprets the presence of the appliance as food; this reaction tends to go after one or two days. You will have regular appointments for adjustments and monitoring of this appliance but if you experience any irritation of the cheek, gum or tongue, your orthodontist can adjust the appliance to make it more comfortable.

Removable brace advantages

Removable appliances are easier to keep clean (because you can take them out). This also makes it easier for you to maintain your oral hygiene as you’re able to continue with a proper brushing and flossing routine without having to worry about cleaning around your appliance. Use the cleaning solutions and instructions given to you by your orthodontist to keep your brace clean. You must also keep your removable appliance in a safe place when not being worn as they are easily lost.
