Removable appliances can be defined as an appliance which can be removed by the patient for cleaning but when in the mouth is firmly attached to the anchor teeth, so that controlled pressure can be brought to bear on the teeth to be moved.
Used for simple tooth movements, usually for younger children. An example of this is the correction of cross bites. Removable appliances can also be used before fixed appliances to gain space and open the bite.
Removable appliances are worn constantly, except when eating or brushing teeth. Treatment takes approximately a year and is the most effective for children ages 7-10.
