Adelaide Orthodontists We Are Your Experts For All Removable Plates In Adelaide
Here at Adelaide Orthodontists We Have A Large Variety Of Removable Appliances or “Plates”
Removable appliances or “plates” are often used in growing patients to alter the growth pattern of the jaws in order to correct a problem with the relationship of the upper and lower jaws to each other, or problems with the way the teeth bite together. This can often correct jaw discrepancies before they develop into major problems.
Sometimes these appliances are used to expand the growing jaw to provide more space for the teeth to fit in properly. They can also be used for correction of minor discrepancies in tooth positioning and alignment.
Removable appliances can be used on their own, particularly in younger patients, but are sometimes used as part of an overall treatment plan which may also involve braces or other treatments. The orthodontists at Adelaide Orthodontists will discuss with you whether removable appliances will be helpful with your treatment.
The treatment process
Removable appliances (plates) are great for both pre and post orthodontic treatment. Plates are usually worn by younger children to fix minor crowding or bite problems.
While plates are usually used to make smaller corrections, they are sometimes used early as a first phase of treatment. Whether your child has lost their teeth early or is experiencing misaligned teeth as they grow back in, early orthodontic for children can help reduce the amount of cosmetic corrections needed later in life.
Plates are also used post orthodontic treatment to essentially maintain the work completed by the braces once removed to avoid teeth from moving.
There are various pros and cons (alternatives) for plates in orthodontic treatments. So for a full breakdown and further information please get in contact with our friendly orthodontists today. And let us help you get the perfect smile.
