In some cases simple tooth movement can be done with plates that are removable. These have springs or expansion devices to allow some reshaping o the jaws. Perfect for the young patient with minor problems developing.
Although removable, these braces should be worn 24 hours a day, unless you are instructed otherwise. Removable braces move teeth using delicate wires called ‘springs’. These can be damaged easily, so you need to take care of your brace!
