A removable appliance, in dental terms, is any form of oral device which can be inserted and removed from the mouth anytime.

In the earlier days of dentistry, permanent metal braces and retainers were the only operating methods of teeth straightening.

Braces have been used to correct crooked teeth for centuries but were likely to cause pain and discomfort in most cases. Likewise, retainers were very painful. For these reasons, more efficient and safe options were needed – and consequently removable appliances were brought to the market.
