What are dental headgears?
An orthodontic device called a headgear is used to encourage healthy jaw development and bite correction. There are several kinds. Typically, youngsters whose jaw bones are still developing are advised to wear headgear. Headgear is partially worn outside the mouth. If your child's bite is seriously out of line, an orthodontist could suggest headgear for them.
Tooth overcrowding and jaw misalignment are treated with headgear. In turn, fixing the profile can improve face attractiveness. Of course, it can also make your child’s grin look better.
Headgear functions by applying pressure to either the upper or lower jaw. Additionally, it might open up spaces between teeth to get rid of crowding or overlapping teeth.
Headgear is only effective when a child is still growing. Headgear can hold back the growth of the jawbone, forcing it into proper alignment with ongoing, consistent pressure exerted over time.
- When utilizing headgear, it’s important to adhere to your dentist’s recommendations.
- The length of time that headgear must be worn is one of the most crucial factors in its effective utilization. This may last for as long as 14 hours a day or more.

- The faster the headgear works, the more often your youngster wears it. Unfortunately, if headgear is not worn for one day, part of the improvement accomplished might be undone.
