What is headgear?

Headgear is a type of orthodontic appliance that connects to the teeth and is held in place with a strap behind the neck or the crown of the head. Headgear is often used when the top jaw or top teeth are too far forward relative to the bottom jaw or bottom teeth. If a patient needs to wear headgear we usually request that it be worn in the evening and during sleep time.
