Upper Removable Braces

Plastic braces for just the top teeth

Upper removeable braces for children

Ideal for younger children or for minor tooth corrections

These are plastic braces that can be easily taken in and out of the mouth by the patient. Every orthodontic case is different and some children may only require the position of one or two front teeth adjusted. Although fixed braces work better, some younger children under the age of 10 can wear these upper removeable braces but they usually need a fixed brace treatment a few years later.

Minor Corrections

Upper removable braces are effective for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic problems. They have a clear or coloured plastic plate so these aligners are great for moving the upper teeth horizontally (right or left) but aren’t as effective as fixed braces for more complex orthodontic treatments.

Easily Removeable

These upper removable braces clip over your teeth and can be taken out for eating (especially fizzy drinks), teeth cleaning, sport or for playing a musical instrument. They are great at helping your child maintain their oral health. Brushing your teeth is also easier.

Treatment with removable braces usually takes between 4-12 months. Patients need to attend regular appointments so that your brace can be adjusted and your tooth movements are checked.

"After just 15 months I am amazed and very pleased with the smile I now have. I no longer hide from the camera and am more than happy to show off my brilliant smile and my self confidence in general is much higher. I only wish I had done it years ago."


"The whole experience was great, the staff were very friendly and my appointments were always quick and on time - so I was able to fit them in around work. I now like showing off my smile and my self confidence has improved. My only regret is that I waited all those years before I plucked up the courage to do it!"


"Now the brace is off after only 16 months – and I don’t know where the time has gone. For me the result is remarkable. It’s hard to believe how much movement can be achieved. Don’t think about it as long as I did. Make that appointment, you won’t regret it."
