Document What are the different types of orthodontic appliances?

Orthodontic treatment uses appliances to correct the position of the teeth. The main types of appliance are:
  • Removable Appliances - These are usually plastic plates that cover the roof of the mouth and clip on to some teeth; they can be taken out and cleaned.
  • Functional Appliances - These are removable plastic braces that are joined together or designed to work together to improve the bite.
  • Fixed Appliances - These are non-removable braces that are fixed to the teeth by the orthodontist.
