Upper Removable Appliances

URAThese appliances are easily removed, cleaned and are less complicated and less costly than fixed braces.  They can also be made for younger patients who have yet to obtain most of their permanent teeth.  However, their use is limited to simple tooth corrections.

Orthodontic problems such as crossbites, finger or thumbsucking habits and space maintenance can be corrected using these appliances.  This can, in some cases, eliminate the need for more complex orthodontic treatment at a later date.
