What is movable brace orthodontics
By movable brace orthodontics it is referred to a process by which the patient will be enabled to manually remove the orthodontics from his/her mouth. This type of treatment requires the patient's collaboration. There are two types of movable brace orthodontics: normal plaques that are used for amendment of normal abnormalities, and movable plaques that are used for correction of jaws' positioning. Movable brace orthodontics are usually prescribed for individuals at younger ages and those at the earlier stages of treatment.

Most patients are interested in movable brace orthodontics since it enables them to remove them from their mouth when they want to have a meal. This way, not only having the meal becomes more enjoyable, but also it would be easier to clean the teeth afterwards.
