Depending on the individual situation, different types of appliances may be used for orthodontic treatment. Appliances are usually used for “early treatment “ or “phase 1” treatment. The main types of appliances used at Glenferrie Orthodontics are
Quad Helix Appliance
This appliance expands the upper jaw to make more space for crowded teeth
Lower Lingual Appliance
This appliance saves the space from baby teeth to accommodate adult teeth.
Headgear holds the upper jaw back and allows the lower jaw to “catch up” with the upper jaw.
