Do you use recycled orthodontic brackets?
Are there “invisible” braces?
What is a “headgear” and will I need one?
- A headgear is an orthodontic appliance worn outside the mouth and attached to the upper teeth. It is used to produce a force aimed at pushing back the upper teeth.
- It consists of an elastic strap going around the back of the head and a metal bow anchored to the upper teeth.
- Even if headgears are commonly used in orthodontics, you will not need to wear one in our practice. The technics that we use allow us to obtain the desired tooth movements and corrections without ever using headgears.
