A headgear is a type of orthodontic appliance that puts pressure to the upper teeth and upper jaw to guide the direction of upper jaw growth and tooth eruption. Rubber bands are hooked to the braces and connected to a strap worn around the head. The headgear may be removed by the patient and is usually worn 10 to 12 hours per day during sleep time.
