Orthodontic facemasks and headgear

When you undergo treatment for a misalignment, also called malocclusion, the issue’s severity may require you to wear adjustable headgear or a facemask. One of the earliest stages of treatment for jaw misalignment that affects your facial features is orthodontic protraction of the jaw. During this process, an orthodontic facemask appliance pulls the top jaw — or maxilla — forward to bring it into alignment.
