Types of braces for children
removable and fixed appliance:
A removable appliance is recommended for children who do not have all of the permanent teeth yet, to correct malocclusion and prevent aggravation of the already existing problems. To obtain the best results, the appliance should be worn daily for a dozen or so hours at the minimum. A removable appliance is composed of an acrylic plate, metal archwire and metal hooks – children may choose the colour of the acrylic plate in their appliance. Wearing a removable appliance is painless, only a slight sense of discomfort may be felt at times. The parent should remember to bring the child for regular follow-up appointments to regulate and adjust the appliance. The duration of the therapy with a removable appliance is specified by the doctor.
In the case of children over 12 years old or once all of the permanent teeth have erupted, the doctor may decide to use a fixed appliance.
