Fixed Appliance Vs. Removable Appliances
At Ivy City Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we believe you should be fully educated when it comes to your treatment. It’s helpful for patients around Washington, DC, to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances.
Dr. JC attaches fixed appliances, like braces, to your teeth and won’t take them off until you complete your treatment. You'll wear it with removable appliances (like Invisalign’s aligner system) most of the day, but you can take the trays out of your mouth.
Besides the obvious differences, Dr. JC uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems and fixed appliances for more complex cases.
