Fixed Bite-Plate

Lady smilingYour bite-plate is a fixed appliance that will be secured in your mouth for 2-4 months. It is necessary to protect your lower braces and teeth along with reducing the depth of the bite. This appliance allows the back teeth and bone to grow while it holds the front teeth. You will gradually adjust to eating. Be sure to chop up all your food into small pieces before eating, especially hot dogs! Be sure to brush it and your teeth after each meal.

Your bite-plate may affect your speech for a few days until you become accustomed to it. Within a short time, you may even forget that you have the bite-plate in your mouth.

Please Remember:

  • Always keep it clean!
  • Please call if there are any questions.
