Space Maintenance

 

Lower Lingual Arch (LLA)

A lingual arch is an orthodontic device which connects two molars in the upper or lower dental arch. The lower lingual arch (LLA) has an archwire adapted to the lingual side of the lower teeth.

Trans-Palatal Arch (TPA)

TPA (Trans-Palatal Arch) The Trans-Palatal Arch is an orthodontic appliance used to maintain the upper jaw's arch width and move molars into positions that wires alone can't. The appliance is banded around the first molars on each side of the mouth, and a thin wire spans across the roof of the mouth.

Nance (Hayes-Nance)

Depending on the needs of the patient, a Nance Appliance can be used to slightly expand or rotate the upper molars or hold the molars in place, following the movement of teeth. The appliance is commonly used to prevent upper molars from drifting forward. It is sometimes used as a fixed upper retainer.

Custom Mouthguard

The American Dental Association and the Academy for Sports Dentistry recommend a professionally-made, properly-fitted custom mouthguard for all contact and collision sports. Over 5 million teeth are knocked out each year and the lifetime cost to replace one tooth is approximately $20,000 . Protecting your smile while playing sports is essential when you have braces. Mouthguards help protect your teeth and gums from injury. If you participate in basketball, boxing, hockey, football, gymnastics, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, rugby, track and field, skateboarding, skiing and snowboarding, skydiving, soccer, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weightlifting, or wrestling, it is recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists that you wear a mouthguard. You can order these in Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple.
