What Is a Removable Brace?

Removable braces are non-fixed orthodontic appliances that straighten your teeth. They can be used to correct minor problems, or as part of fixed-brace treatment.
Removable braces clip over your teeth and can be taken out for eating, cleaning, sport or playing a musical instrument. However, they should only be removed in a special way as recommended by your orthodontist.


Removable braces are often a cost-effective option for many people, especially those with minor to moderate dental issues. Compared to fixed braces, removable aligners require less frequent office visits and are more discreet.
Removable aligners are also easier to clean and are less likely to get food stuck in them. They can also be taken out for eating, teeth cleaning or sports activities.
The cost of a removable brace depends on the type of treatment and duration. For children, the cost is usually covered by health insurance.
If you are an adult, the cost of a removable brace is not always covered by your health insurance and can range from PS 600 to PS 1500, depending on the duration and the exact type of treatment.
Choosing orthodontic care can be a major financial commitment, but you should consider it an investment in your overall health and confidence. By straightening crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth, you reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, as well as jaw joint problems like bruxism (teeth grinding) and TMJ disorder.


A removable brace can be a bit of a pain to wear in the beginning. It will make your mouth produce a lot of saliva and it can feel a little tender in the areas where the wires touch. This is a normal part of the process and will settle within a few days.
As with fixed braces, it is vital to take good care of your removable brace to avoid damage or loss and to prolong its lifespan. This means cleaning your brace thoroughly every time you use it and keeping it in the box that we provide.
Getting used to the brace also involves a little effort in the form of trying to speak and eating with it on – this will require some practice to get it right but it’s not impossible. It’s also a good idea to take some of your favourite chewy foods on board in order to give your teeth a break from the stiffness of the wires!


Removable braces are a popular choice for children and young adults who want to wear a dental brace but don’t need it for serious tooth alignment problems. They are also more convenient than fixed braces since they can be removed during meals and brushing.
Removable orthodontic appliances can be a useful option for adults, too. They are more hygienic and comfortable than fixed braces because food detritus won’t stick to the appliance, which makes it easier to clean.
The Inman Aligner is a removable brace that features a coiled spring and metal bar to guide teeth into the right position. They are suitable for minor treatments and are a good alternative to fixed braces, although they do generate a foul smell when not cleaned properly.
Depending on your individual needs and the extent of the problem, a dentist may recommend a removable brace to you. However, the best option for you will depend on your lifestyle, budget and treatment goals.


Removable braces are an effective treatment option for minor dental issues such as crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, and bite misalignments. They can also be used to treat jaw pain and tooth relapse.
Removable orthodontic appliances are plastic plates that have loop- or U-shaped wire components attached to them. The wires push on certain teeth to move them and widen the jaw.
Depending on the problem, treatment with removable braces can take between 6-12 months. Regular appointments are necessary during this time to ensure that the appliance is working as expected.
Removable braces are more comfortable than traditional braces and require less effort on the part of the patient. However, it is important to wear the aligners around-the-clock and to follow your orthodontist’s instructions. Otherwise, progress may be slow and unsatisfactory.
