Dr. Lin's Headgear Guide

Headgear Best Practices & Tips:

  • Headgears should be worn at least 14 hours every day.  For every day the appliance isn't worn, it takes 3 full days of actually wearing the appliance to make up for lost progress/treatment.  
  • If wearing the headgear all the time feels like it's interfering with your daily life, try wearing it (at the very least) during a low-energy activity like when you're doing homework or watching TV.
  • Remember, the more often you wear your headgear, the sooner your treatment will be complete!
