Removable Braces

Unlocking Smiles with Removable Braces

Removable braces continue to play a vital role in modern orthodontics, particularly for younger children undergoing interceptive treatment at Balbriggan Braces. While fixed braces offer precise control, removable braces excel in quickly shifting teeth during critical developmental stages. Often, we commence treatment with removable braces to address major adjustments before transitioning to fixed braces for fine-tuning. 

Although primarily worn full time, removable braces offer effective solutions, especially with our most utilised appliance, the Twin-Block.

Key Features

Swift Adjustments: Removable braces facilitate rapid tooth movement, making them ideal for early intervention and guiding dental development.

Transition Flexibility: Starting with removable braces allows for seamless transitioning to fixed braces, ensuring comprehensive orthodontic treatment tailored to individual needs.

Functional Innovation: Our most utilised appliance, the Twin-Block, redefines orthodontic outcomes by altering oral functions to achieve optimal results. This functional appliance effectively addresses overjets, enhancing facial profiles and overall dental harmony.

The Twin-Block Appliance

The Twin-Block Appliance is a special type of removable brace that helps fix problems like teeth sticking out too far (overjets). It works by gently guiding the lower jaw into a better position, improving how your face looks. It’s comfortable to wear and helps you chew, talk, and breathe better too.

At Balbriggan Braces, we use the Twin-Block Appliance to give you a smile you’ll love.

Treatment Considerations

Age-Appropriate Solutions: Removable braces are commonly recommended for younger children undergoing interceptive treatment to guide dental development effectively.

Transition to Fixed Braces: While effective, removable braces may serve as a precursor to fixed braces for adults or teenagers requiring precise orthodontic adjustments.
