Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances
At Elm Tree Orthodontics, we believe you should be fully educated when it comes to your treatment. It’s helpful for patients in Hamden and our surrounding communities, to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances.
When Dr. Desai attaches fixed appliances, like braces, to your teeth, we won’t take them off until you complete your treatment.
Removable appliances, like the Invisalign or Spark clear aligner systems, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.
Besides the obvious differences, Elm Tree Orthodontics uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Dr. Desai generally uses fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
