In certain cases of orthodontic interception, we use removable orthodontic appliances. Patients can therefore easily remove and replace the device in their mouth.

During orthodontic treatment, it is very important to understand the best time to start. For some patients, there is no factor forcing prompt treatment of malocclusion, but for others, it is better to start treatment at a younger age. These little patients, between 6 and 12 years old, are excellent candidates for certain types of removable orthodontic appliances.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of removable orthodontic appliances?

At the Chez Soie Dentisterie clinic, we take the time to choose the type of equipment needed to treat your child’s teeth. Each technique and device used has its advantages and disadvantages. For most removable appliances, the main advantage is easy removal from the mouth, which means it is very easy for the child to remove it to eat and clean their teeth. This feature also makes it easier to make appointments with your dentist for adjustments or modifications to the device. However, its main advantage also has a negative counterpart. Since the device is removable, it is easy for the child to forget it, lose it or not wear it according to the recommendations of their dentist. This is why we always suggest that patients store their device in the case provided when putting it in their mouth. Parental supervision is also essential and paramount in the effectiveness of the child’s treatment.
