Removable Braces

Your local friendly orthodontist

Removable braces are usually worn only on your upper teeth. They are kept in by metal clips that fit over the teeth at the front and back.


Removable appliances have an acrylic base and stainless steel components to hold the appliance firmly onto the teeth. Movement of teeth is achieved by the stainless steel springs being distorted out of shape during activation by the dentist, so that as they move back to their original shape, they pull or push the misaligned teeth with them.


How is it done?


  • A bracket is fitted to each tooth.
  • A wire is then connected to each bracket.
  • Coloured bands secure the wire to the brackets.
  • Slowly, over several months, the wire is shortened pulling the teeth gently into line.
