In the case of a minor disorder it can be applied in childhood. Also useful when the aim is to avoid the eventual restoration of the original condition of dentition after using fixed orthodontic appliances.
- with the devices either for teeth of upper or lower jaws we can broaden the dental arch, we can eliminate some certain biting difficulties ( ie. Cross-bite), we can close gaps or make space for some teeth.
- with the device for both teeth-dental arches we could generate growth of the jawbone, so we can adjust biting.
The disadvantage of the removable orthodontic appliances is the much lower degree of making the teeth move, so they are far not as effective as the fixed orthodontic appliances. That is why following the use of removable appliances some patients often need a treatment with a fixed appliance to achieve the perfect result. This time we consider the treatment with removable appliance as a pre-treatment.
