Removable Vs. Fixed Appliances
At Hometown Orthodontics, we believe you should be educated on your treatment choices.
Patients around Searcy and Heber Springs need to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like metal or clear braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment at Hometown Orthodontics.
Removable appliances, like clear aligner systems, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily by patients around Searcy and Heber Springs. Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Powell uses clear aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
At Hometown Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious treatments.
