Orthodontic Treatment Options

Functional appliances

Functional appliances are removable braces which act both to correct the position of the teeth and to harness the growth of the jaws in order to improve the relationship between the upper and lower teeth.  They most often consist of an upper and lower paired set of removable braces, which require full-time wear with the exception of cleaning, sports and eating.  Occasionally they are used as stand-alone treatments, but are more commonly used prior to fixed braces.

At the end of treatment, most patients benefit from an improvement in their profile as well as an improved relationship between the top and bottom teeth.
