Removable braces are also referred to as plates. Plates are made from plastic, wires and screws. Plates are limited in the type of tooth movements that can be achieved. These appliances are used selectively for specific and usually younger patients. They are commonly used over shorter treatment periods (2 – 8 months) and come in the colour of your choice. Removable appliances make it more challenging to speak. Plates can be removed for eating and brushing but, for them to work well, 22 hours of daily wear is usually required.
