Functional appliances

Is a functional appliance fixed or removable?

Functional appliances are available in both formats: fixed and removable. When the orthodontist detects an imbalance in the growth of your child’s jaw, the functional appliance is often the first phase of treatment. Commonly, this treatment is followed by braces to correct tooth alignment and create as close to an ideal bite as possible.
