Lip Bumper

An appliance used by your orthodontist to help create space in your lower jaw for your permanent teeth. It consists of an archwire that is covered in the front by a piece of molded plastic. In your mouth, it attaches to buccal tubes on your lower molars. Your lips lightly press on the bumper and move your lower molars back.
