What is removable orthodontic treatment?

removable orthodontic treatment

Removable orthodontic treatment, also known as removable braces or clear aligners, is a method that utilizes specialized dental appliances to correct dental imperfections and align teeth to their desired position.

These appliances can be easily removed for oral care, hygiene maintenance, reducing discomfort, or ensuring aesthetics when interacting with others, making them convenient for users.

This method is mainly used to treat cases of crooked, protruding, crowded, crossbite, narrow jaw, overbite, or underbite teeth. Therefore, removable braces are commonly chosen for children between the ages of 8 and 12 when their teeth are still in the developmental stage. However, in some cases, this method can also be used for adults.


In Vietnam, there are currently three popular types of removable braces:

  • Invisalign, which is a transparent removable aligner.
  • Removable braces with expanders to widen the jaw.
  • 3D Clear braces that do not require brackets.

For adults, removable aligners such as Invisalign and Clear Aligners are used. These transparent aligners fit closely to the teeth, exerting strong forces to move the teeth to their correct position.

The characteristics of removable orthodontic treatment include:

Some characteristics of removable orthodontic treatment include:

  • The general characteristic of removable orthodontic appliances is that they are solid blocks that need to be used simultaneously for multiple teeth or the entire jaw.
  • Removable braces have the effect of tilting teeth in a fixed direction or adjusting the entire jaw, rather than just moving individual teeth.
  • While fixed braces require tightly attaching brackets to the teeth and relying on the force exerted by archwires to adjust the teeth, and must be worn continuously for a long period of time, removable braces are much more convenient as they can be removed at any desired time.
  • After the initial placement of removable braces, users may experience pain, discomfort, and increased saliva production, but these sensations will gradually decrease and disappear within a week.
  • The duration of using removable braces for treatment depends on the changes in the condition of the teeth as well as the patient’s self-care practices.

Although removable orthodontic treatment has many outstanding advantages compared to other methods of teeth alignment, it is only suitable for certain individuals in specific cases. First, it is important to determine that removable braces can be used for all age groups, from children aged 8-12 to adults, who encounter the following cases:

  • Protruding, misaligned, or crooked teeth.
  • Teeth that are growing in a crowded, overlapping, or misaligned manner.
  • Malocclusion or bite misalignment.
  • Gaps or spacing between teeth.
  • Children with narrow or uneven jaw structure.

For children aged 8-12: This method is most commonly used for children because during this stage, the jawbone is still developing and relatively soft, making it easier to align the teeth to their correct position.

For adults: This method is highly suitable for busy adults who may not have a lot of time and need to communicate frequently but still want to align their teeth. Additionally, this method ensures a high level of aesthetics when used.

In general, using removable braces creates less pressure compared to the method of using fixed braces, resulting in a longer treatment duration. However, in cases where the patient has severe protrusion, crooked teeth, or significant bite misalignment, it is still advisable to consider using fixed braces.

However, to determine which method is most suitable, it is still recommended to visit reputable dental clinics for examination, evaluation, and consultation to choose the most appropriate method.

  • This method can be used for all ages, especially young children who are not suitable for fixed braces. 
  • The transparent aligners are structurally designed to form a solid and stable block, which helps prevent any loosening. 
  • The process of implementing removable orthodontic treatment is much simpler compared to the method of using fixed braces. 
  • The materials used for the orthodontic appliances are safe, non-toxic, and do not cause irritation to the soft tissues, thus not negatively affecting the user’s health. 
  • They can be easily removed and reinserted, making them convenient for daily activities, eating, and oral hygiene. 
  • They provide a more comfortable experience during daily activities, such as eating and oral hygiene. As a result, teeth are better preserved because they can remove any food debris stuck between the teeth, thus avoiding the occurrence of bacteria and oral diseases. 
  • They offer aesthetic benefits, especially for individuals whose professions require frequent communication, meetings with partners or clients, actors or singers, celebrities, or those who need to be on camera. 
  • The cost of removable orthodontic treatment is reasonable and affordable for all individuals seeking treatment. 
  • It saves a lot of time spent on dental visits, making it suitable for individuals who live far away or have busy schedules. 

Disadvantages of removable orthodontic treatment include:

  • The initial use of removable braces may cause some discomfort and a cumbersome feeling. 
  • The effectiveness of orthodontic treatment depends heavily on the user’s high level of self-discipline and awareness. 
  • The recommended usage time is 20-22 hours per day to achieve the best treatment outcomes. 
  • Removable braces are not suitable for patients with a slightly low palate. 
  • The achieved results may last longer compared to fixed braces, primarily due to the impact of tooth tilting, making relapse more likely. 

Is removable orthodontic treatment safe for users?

Removable orthodontic treatment is very safe to use.

One of the reasons why removable braces are preferred by many people is their safety. While long-term use of fixed braces can have serious effects on the gum tissues, the use of removable braces helps to minimize this condition.

Removable orthodontic treatment uses simple appliances or transparent aligners, so patients don’t have to worry about brackets coming off like with the other method, and the soft tissues in the oral cavity are not damaged. Therefore, the answer to the question of whether removable orthodontic treatment is safe for users is a definite yes!

Methods of implementing removable orthodontic treatment

Currently, there are two popular types of removable braces on the market: appliances for children aged 8-12 and aligners for adults.

Appliances for adults

Unlike children, adults will use appliances like Invisalign or Clear Aligner. These transparent aligners are specially designed to fit tightly around the teeth, creating a gentle force to gradually move the teeth to their correct positions on the jawbone without causing pain or discomfort for the user.

In addition to using safe and non-irritating materials that do not affect oral health, the aligners are also designed to be transparent, ensuring aesthetic appeal and allowing users to communicate confidently without worrying about others noticing their braces.

These include fixed appliances that are attached to the teeth in the jaw arch to stimulate jawbone development and correct jaw discrepancies. These appliances are relatively inexpensive but provide high effectiveness with their unique characteristics that not only straighten the teeth but also correct the jaw, reducing the occurrence of crowded teeth and facial deformities in the future, while ensuring comfort and ease of use for children.

  • 2×4 Appliance: Its main function is to adjust the upper and lower jaws that show signs of spacing, misalignment, or overbite.
  • Twin Block Appliance: Its main function is to adjust the upper or lower jaw if it shows signs of protrusion and stimulate the forward movement of the lower jaw compared to the upper jaw.
  • Headgear Appliance: Its main function is to adjust a protruding or retruded upper jaw.
  • Quad-helix / Wilson Appliance: Its function is to expand a narrow jaw arch, providing quick and effective impact on both the teeth and the jaw, while preventing the risk of posterior deviations.

Methods of implementing removable orthodontic treatment

The procedure for implementing the removable orthodontic treatment method is simple and does not take too much time.

  • Step 1: First, you need to visit a dental clinic for a specific examination to assess the condition of your teeth and determine the appropriate type of removable orthodontic treatment method.
  • Step 2: The dentist will create a treatment plan and provide advice on the most suitable removable orthodontic method.
  • Step 3: Oral hygiene is performed, and the dentist will proceed to install the removable orthodontic appliance at the clinic for the patient.
  • Step 4: After providing the appropriate appliances (for children) or aligner trays (for adults), the dentist will provide instructions and essential guidelines for patients to use at home.
  • Step 5: During the initial period of appliance use, regular follow-up appointments should be scheduled according to the dentist’s recommendations to monitor any issues or changes in the teeth.

With this method, patients do not have to visit the dental clinic frequently for check-ups or adjustments like with fixed braces. However, perhaps due to the convenience of removable braces, patients may become complacent during the usage process.

It is important to follow the dentist’s instructions correctly. Proper technique should be used for appliance removal and insertion, and wearing the appliance for 22 hours per day is crucial to achieve the best results.

Important considerations when using removable orthodontic treatment

Issues with using removable orthodontic treatment

  • Regular wearing of the removable appliance is necessary to maintain the effectiveness of the treatment. Failure to do so may affect the progress of the treatment.
  • During the period of wearing the removable appliance, follow-up appointments should be scheduled according to the dentist’s recommendations to monitor any changes in the teeth and address any issues promptly.

Oral hygiene issues

  • Proper oral hygiene is important, including cleaning the teeth and appliance after each meal. Food particles can easily get stuck in the appliance, leading to oral health problems. It may be more challenging to clean certain types of removable appliances, so using cleaning tablets or solutions specifically designed for orthodontic appliances can be helpful.
  • Using dental floss threaders instead of regular floss can help remove food particles without causing harm to the appliance or gums.
  • Brushing the teeth correctly 2-3 times a day, especially after meals, and using mouthwash or specialized dental cleaning solutions is recommended.
  • Using a soft-bristle toothbrush is advised to avoid excessive pressure on the teeth and gums.

Dietary considerations

  • Follow a balanced and nutritious diet during this time.
  • Ensure adequate intake of foods that are good for teeth, such as those rich in zinc, calcium, iron, and foods that contain protein, minerals, and vitamins beneficial to overall health.
  • Limit consumption of hard, chewy, and tough foods that require excessive force for chewing.
  • Avoid sticky foods to prevent food particles from getting stuck in the teeth.
  • Avoid stimulants such as alcohol, cigarettes, coffee, carbonated drinks, etc., to prevent tooth discoloration and enamel damage.
