What is that "biteplate" for?

this is just a part of the headgear that the little thing in the middle goes in your mouth

what is the use of the biteplate and the those rings????????

the biteplate stops your bottom teeth meeting so they grow closer correcting an overbite

uh huh this is for when you have crowded teeth and a major overbite

Do you have to wear the facebow near when you first get them ? or nearly when your finished with your braces ?

The reason for a bite plate is so that when you have a overbite the ortho can put top and bottom braces on at the same and you won't bite down or knock of the bottom braces. I am getting a bite plate in two day but mine won't have the things that go outside of your mouth.

My daughter has top teeth in braces. She wears a lip bumper and headgear. Now, she will have to have top braces taken off to get a monoblock appliance. Does anyone know what this looks like?

well i went to the ortho today for a conseltation and i have 2 options: 1)the head gear fr about 9 months beacuse im 14 and im getting my braces kinda late. and my over bite it pretty bad but not really bad you knoe wat i mean 2)get 2 teeth pulled out from the top and go threw the pain. does the headgear hurt?? which should i get??

i'd rather get the teeth pulled. I had to get 4 teeth pulled b4 i got my braces. But i had not choice i had to get them pulled and that was cool cuz i had gotten alot of my baby teeth pulled b4. But he said i would never need headgear...getting teeth pulled aint that bad so i would just pick the teeth pulled

yeah ashley, don't worry i had 6 teeth removed when i was 6 and 3 teeth remove when i was 10 and it hurt only a little... so don't worry... i'd go for the extraction
