Teeth plates are removable and non-removable orthodontic structures for aligning teeth, which are made of polymeric materials (polyurethane, silicone) and wire and are fixed on the teeth with hooks and braces. The principle of operation of such devices is that they exert gentle pressure on the dentition or its individual parts, thereby correcting the bite. Need to regularly correct the pressure exerted by the plates.
