While orthodontic appliances plates are usually applied to correct small problems, they can also be used in the early phase treatment. For example, plates can be used in young children to close gaps or maintain appropriate space between teeth for the adult teeth to grow into. Although plates are designed to prevent extreme tooth movement, braces might still be required in a second phase of treatment to align the teeth and create a proper bite.
