These are used to correct the positioning of the teeth by applying constant pressure, which helps in aligning the bite and improving the fit of teeth.


This appliance is essential when extra force is needed to move the teeth and jaw. It is most effective in children and adolescents because it capitalizes on their growth to guide and modify jaw alignment.

Palatal Expander

It applies pressure to the upper molars by turning a screw in the center of the appliance, and incrementally widening the upper jaw until the desired expansion is achieved.


This appliance is used in the final stages of orthodontic treatment. It helps in completing the necessary fine adjustments in tooth positioning after the main work with braces is completed.


These devices are crucial in maintaining the new position of teeth after braces are removed. They can be either removable or fixed, and they ensure that teeth do not revert to their original positions.

Separators or Spacers

These small rubber rings are temporarily inserted between teeth to create enough space for orthodontic bands. Patients must avoid sticky foods that can dislodge them.

LMD (Lip Bumper)

This is used primarily to influence the growth direction of the lower jaw by applying pressure to the molars, encouraging more vertical growth and helping to correct the position of teeth that are tilted inward.
