Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances
At Orthodontic Associates, we believe you should be fully educated about your treatment.
It’s helpful for patients around the Tampa Bay area to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances.
Dr. Adam attaches fixed appliances, like braces, to your teeth and won’t take them off until you complete your treatment at Orthodontic Associates.
If Dr. Adam prescribes a removable clear aligner system like Invisalign, you’ll wear the trays most of the day, but you can take the trays out of your mouth whenever you’d like to.
Besides the noticeable differences, we use may use these treatments differently. Dr. Adam generally uses clear aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues and fixed appliances for more severe problems.
