Removable Vs. Fixed Appliances

At Backus Orthodontics, we believe you should be educated on your treatment choices.

It’s important 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.

Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day, by patients around Hoover, but you can take them off easily.

Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Jeff Backus uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems, while fixed appliances are better suited to treat severe orthodontic problems.

Whether you choose a removable or fixed appliance, your treatment will be surprisingly comfortable, quick, and effortless, thanks to the latest advancements in orthodontic technology and our high-quality, expert care at Backus Orthodontics.
