Functional braces

These are a family of removable appliances that aim to enhance growth in a particular direction to correct underlying problems with jaw size and position. They are commonly used to treat growing patients (approx 12-13 yrs) who have prominent upper teeth due to smaller than ideal lower jaws. Treatment times average 6-9 months and patients usually progress to fixed braces for an ideal outcome.
