Nowadays, there are many different orthodontic appliances that are not used 24 hours a day; they can be removed for some time. The correction of malocclusion with gum shields is one of the safest, most popular and most efficient modern method offered by Alaska dentists. Gum shields are individual orthodontic designs, the form of thin, transparent moulds that fit over the entire dentition. Gum shield structure design is installed in such way that the inner surface distributes certain pressure on the teeth and aligns them in the right direction. When the “certain stage” of gum shield correction has successfully passed, it is replaced with a smaller device.

The course of occlusion correction continues until the full alignment of the dentition. Today, this method invented by the American company Align Technology’s, is becoming more popular. This technique is not only more aesthetically pleasing than the bracers; it also significantly reduces the time of treatment. Gum shields do not rub the gums, do not interfere with chewing and pronunciation. There are materials for their renewal, such as special gel which, in its turn, whitens the teeth.
