Functional appliances are braces that are used to modify facial growth & improve the facial profile in patients that are growing.

They are worn initially part-time and then built up to full-time wear. They are commonly fitted just before all of a child’s baby teeth have shed. The average patient wears these for 6-12 months, sometimes followed by train track fixed appliances.
