NON-REMOVABLE FUNCTIONAL DEVICES
Non-removable functional devices are adjusting the occlusion by changing the position of the lower jaw. The jaw is pushed in the right direction and the teeth position is changing.
These devices, same as removable functional devices, are usually used by adolescents during their intensive growth when they are 12-14 years old.
Non-removable functional machines can also be used for adults, but in this case the growth stage is already over, therefore it is no longer possible to change the aesthetics of the face – only the occlusion could be adjusted. Sometimes this method becomes an excellent alternative for patients who refuse to have an orthognathic surgery and change the facial aesthetics.
The following non-removable treatments are available in our clinic:
