Removable braces are used for orthodontic treatment of patients of any age suffering from malocclusions.

  • For small children, removable braces are a very effective tool for discontinuing all kinds of bad habits, as well as for the correct development of their teeth.

  • For schoolchildren, removable braces are usually a preparation for their treatment with fixed appliances, thanks to which it can be much faster. Sometimes they are enough to make the teeth grow correctly, in which case no further treatment with fixed braces is necessary.

  • Teenagers as well as adult patients usually use removable braces to stabilize their teeth following the so-called active phase of treatment with fixed braces. In these cases, treatment with removable braces only is of no great consequence and has been discontinued in modern orthodontics.

What are removable braces?

They are an orthodontic appliance consisting of a resin body, wired clasps and several expansive screws and clips, which function as active elements in moving the individual teeth. The main advantage of removable braces is that they can be taken out of the mouth, which makes dental hygiene easier. Another indisputable advantage, appreciated mainly by younger children's parents, is their lower price.

Removable braces for the correct development of small children's teeth

Removable, or, non-fixed braces are a fairly easy way to achieve a symmetrical smile mainly in young children whose teeth are in constant development, which means that it is possible to influence easily the child's inter-jaw relations. Orthodontic treatment with removable braces depends strongly on the child's age and type of teeth, ie. whether he or she has deciduous teeth (primary teeth), mixed (primary and secondary) or secondary only.

An orthodontic specialist has to supervse the treatment in order to check the toothing process regularly. Once the child's secondary teeth have been permanently developed, it is appropriate to begin his or her treatment with fixed braces, which bring much more effective and lifelong results.

3 conditions for effective treatment with removable braces

1. Discipline

Regular usage is extremely important during orthodontic treatment with removable braces. Children tend to put their braces away, it is therefore up to the parents to oversee that the braces are worn properly during the day as well as night.

2. Thorough care

It is necessary to clean the braces every day using a special brush, or place them in designated solution. Removable braces are kept in plastic boxes. There are hundreds of colour combinations available and your youngster will love them.

3. Regular checkups

The correct development of the position of the teeth, as well as the orthodontic appliance itself, should be checked by an orthodontist on a regular basis. Particularly with small children it is very important to attend these so that the treatment goes on exactly as planned.

Removable braces for adults

Removable braces can also be very useful for the orthodontic treatment of teenagers and adults but their role is different than in the case of small patients. Removable braces are used mainly as a means of fixating and stabilizing the teeth after a successfully completed active treatment with fixed braces, whereby they prevent the teeth from relapsing to their original state. Retainers (flat wires attached to the inner side of the teeth ) are an alternative to removable braces as they also stabilize the teeth.

For around a week after the fixed braces have been removed, it is necessary to wear the removable braces all the time; later on it is enough to wear them during the night. This is professionally known as the retention phase, and it usually lasts as long as the active phase, but this always depends on the individual course of treatment.
