EFFICIENT, RELIABLE CLASS II CORRECTION
The Forsus appliance promotes the growth of jaw and teeth structures in adolescents, helping to eliminate excessive overbites, improve the fit of teeth, and possibly prevent the need for jaw surgery.
Your Forsus appliance is fitted in one appointment and doesn’t require any additional lab work, so you won’t have to wait to begin your treatment. There are no daily adjustments to make because the appliance provides a continuous, light force that moves your jaw and teeth into their correct positions.
The Forsus appliance has a low profile and does not affect the appearance of the patient’s cheeks like other class II correction appliances. Moreover, the Forsus appliance allows for a full range of motion, so your speech and eating habits aren’t affected. The best part about the Forsus appliance is that there is no external apparatus (headgear) required. It sits in the back of your mouth, so no one will even notice it’s there.
The open coil spring is designed to be cleaned with ease, while no gaps remain present to trap food. Patients will be able to continue their oral hygiene habits as usual without having to worry about cleaning around a bulky appliance. As with any orthodontic appliances, hard and sticky food should be avoided, and brushing is always recommended after every meal.
The constant pressure the Forsus appliance generates means that it works without you having to do anything. Even while you sleep, Forsus is helping to move your jaw and teeth into alignment. The appliance works with your existing braces and wires, so there is no need to interrupt your planned treatment.
