Ortho Appliances

Straight TeethStraight Teeth Without Braces!

When you think of your best smile, straight, perfectly aligned teeth are probably part of the picture. Crooked, uneven, overlapping teeth can make you feel uncomfortable and less attractive. In some cases, they also make it difficult to chew or speak. If you want a straight, healthy smile, but don’t want to wear braces, consider removable ortho appliances with Dr. Gabriel Roybal, DDS, in Santa Fe. REMOVE-ABLE ORTHO is a retainer that acts as removable appliance so that you can straighten your teeth without the embarrassment of traditional braces.


With REMOVE-ABLE ORTHO, you will be given a series of removable retainers that will straighten your teeth over time, usually about 9 to 15 months. REMOVE-ABLE ORTHO patients typically are given three sets of aligners–or a retainer as removable appliance–at each visit. You will wear each aligner for about two weeks, and visit Dr. Roybal about every six weeks. Primarily, they should be removed only to eat, drink, brush and floss.

As each aligner is replaced, your teeth gradually will move week by week until they have straightened. There are several advantages to retainers as removable appliances. Patients say ortho appliances are:

  • Invisible. No one can immediately tell you are wearing a retainer to straighten your teeth. You will smile with confidence before and after your treatment!
  • Removable. You can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. With retainers as removable appliances, brushing and flossing are also a breeze.
  • Comfortable. Without brackets and wires, you will avoid mouth abrasions and broken brackets and wires.
  • Sports Friendly. You can play contact sports without braces and wires hurting the inside of your mouth, and without worrying if someone or something hits your face.
