Orthodontic appliances come in a range of shapes and sizes and can be used alone, or along with aligner treatments.
Orthodontic appliances are specialty technologies for treating malocclusions from tooth irregularity or disproportionate jaws. Appliances might be recommended for early treatment, children’s orthodontics, or specialised corrections.
