A metal or ceramic dental base is affixed to each tooth, and a dental wire is inserted through each base.
The orthodontist is able to gradually train the teeth into proper alignment by regularly adjusting the wire.
When the desired results are achieved, the fixed dental braces are completely removed.
There are a wide range of removable appliances commonly used in orthodontics, including headgear that correct overbites, Hawley retainers that improve the position of the teeth even as the jawbone reforms, and facemasks which are used to correct an underbite.
This is a newer, removable type of dental aligner that is completely transparent.
Invisalign® does not interfere with eating because of its removable nature, and mechanically works in the same way as the traditional metal dental braces. Not all patients are candidates for Invisalign®.
