Place holders, reinforcement appliances, jaw expander appliances or habit-breaking appliances are classified as movable orthodontic appliances. Some of the movable apparatus types, which are generally used in the treatment of jaw disorders, fit both on the lower and upper jaws and are made with a single body. Intra-oral movable appliances, while straightening the teeth with springs and screws placed on them, give the patient the advantage of removing the appliance whenever they want. The oral appliance is designed by your physician and is used to provide the most effective treatment in a short time.

Oral appliances are determined after the doctor's examination. The treatment process begins with the brackets and plates to be used in the mouth. The duration of the appliances used to change the jaw shape between the movable appliances is determined by the physician's prediction. At the same time, a reinforcement appliance is used to maintain the current situation after the orthodontic treatment is finished. Movable reinforcement appliance called lingual retainer is often applied to the lower jaw. Since intraoral movable appliance applications will be applied differently for each person, your physician should determine the treatment method and plan at the first examination. While the use of extra-oral appliance is chosen by the doctor according to the patient's problem, the method and duration of application will also vary according to the condition of the person.
