Removable appliance or removable braces are used to straighten the teeth and minor orthodontic treatment. These comprise a plate made of plastic with wires coming from the sides. The side wires grip the teeth to allow the brace to remain in place. As the name suggests, these braces can be removed by the patient and fitted again. They are mainly used to move a single tooth and widen either the upper or lower arches. The removable appliance must be worn all the time for them to be effective, except while playing sports and for cleaning or flossing. Some patients might feel strange during the initial period as the plastic plates occupy some space in the mouth, but they get used to it soon. Removable braces offer several benefits to a patient, such as they can be removed when required, for eating, brushing and flossing. This reduces the risk of problems related to oral hygiene during treatment as they are easy to clean. Also, the length of treatment is shorter compared to the traditional braces. The removable appliance is relatively discreet, as they can be removed during the personal and professional occasions, such as a meeting or social party.
