Headgear is the term used for any orthodontic appliance that straps around the head to exert outside pressure onto the patient’s teeth. While not every person who undergoes orthodontic treatment will need headgear, it is an important part of some treatment plans and has plenty of benefits.
Below are a few ways that orthodontic headgear appliances can benefit patients:
Orthodontic headgear is not necessary for all cases of orthodontics, but in some cases, both adults and children can benefit from it. If you do require headgear, try not to stress too much! It doesn’t need to be worn all day, typically only when you’re home or asleep and, with the help of headgear, your treatment will be over before you know it.
