Orthodontic headgear is used for the correction of certain types of orthodontic problems. After the examination and diagnostic records, the orthodontist will determine if the headgear is needed in your case. This appliance creates special forces that guide the growth of the face and jaw. It is also used to move teeth into better positions or to prevent teeth from moving unintentionally.
This appliance is used in cases where the upper teeth or jaw are protruding too far forward. The headgear slows the forward growth of the upper jaw while allowing the lower jaw’s forward growth to continue. It also aids in the backward movement of teeth which have erupted or shifted too far forward.
Wearing a headgear is often the best and only way to achieve the desired results. This is why it is so important to follow the headgear instructions exactly. The more you wear your headgear, the better it works. The short-term sacrifice you make with this appliance will be well worth the healthy, beautiful smile that will be yours for a lifetime.
