Removable, colourful appliances/braces for children and teens.

When orthodontic treatment is recommended for children between the ages of 8 and 14, removable braces are the preferred method as long as the child still has milk teeth. Depending on the brace design, they are used to restrain or direct growth spurts in order to promote the growth of underdeveloped jaws or jaw sections, or to control growth in overdeveloped jaws.

Space retainer

Space retainer

Each milk tooth also serves as a placeholder for the following permanent tooth. If you lose a milk tooth prematurely because of cavities, an inflammation or an accident, a substitute must be provided. This appliance is removable and is only worn at night. It keeps the gap open for the permanent tooth yet to come. The patient does not require any active treatment to the tooth or correction of the jaw.

Active plate

Active plate

The active plate is a removable appliance with spring elements for tooth movement or screws to lengthen the jaw. A stretching time of at least 16 hours per day is recommended to produce the optimal result. To move the screws our patients receive two positioning keys: one straight and one bent. The springs are activated by the dental staff.

Bite jumper

Bite jumper

This appliance is an orthodontic function device. It works by controlling the growth of the jaw parts and adjusting the tongue, chewing and lip functions. The bite jumper used by Adentics has two bars to shift the lower jaw forward, and a screw in both jaws to stretch them. Usually only the screws in the upper jaw have to be affixed.

Activators

Activators

This appliance is an orthodontic function device. It works by controlling growth of the jaw parts and adjusting the tongue, chewing and lip functions. The devices used by Adentics are the flexible-open activator, the Bionator, and the Berliner activator.

Frankel functional appliance

Frankel functional appliance

This appliance is an orthodontic function device. It works by controlling the growth of the jaw parts and adjusting the tongue, chewing and lip functions. At first sight it looks quite large, but in fact they offer maximum comfort since the movement of the tongue is not restricted.

Retention appliance / Retention braces

Retention appliance / Retention braces

These appliances/braces are used after the conclusion of an active orthodontic treatment and serve to protect the treated tooth and jaw position. Retaining clips are usually worn only at night. Since teeth, unfortunately, change their position all through one’s life, retaining clips should also be worn all through one’s life. As an adult, wearing them occasionally (2 nights a week) is generally sufficient.
