Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances

At Monroe Orthodontics, we believe patients should be well informed when it comes to their treatment.

It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment. Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.

Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Leiva uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems. At Monroe Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
