Palatal Appliance

The palatal appliance fits in the roof of your mouth. It is made of acrylic and metal. The purpose of the palatal appliance is to help straighten your upper front teeth, often correcting a crossbite (where the lower teeth are in front of the upper). This is done by the doctor adjusting small springs that rest on the inside of your upper front teeth. You do not need to do anything to the appliance to make it work. All you have to do is wear it as directed. Different designs can be chosen to customize the appliance to each individual. This appliance is removable.
