When people think of orthodontics, they usually think of braces. But as our orthodontist, Dr. Richard Risinger, can tell you, braces and aligners are just parts of the process. Dr. Risinger may also suggest using one or more of the appliances listed below to improve your smile and dental health.
Two of our most effective and popular devices are the Carriere® motion appliance and the Herbst appliance. Both of these help align the jaw and the teeth to prepare you for your orthodontic treatment. The Carriere helps align your back molars and other less-visible teeth to help make your regular treatment quicker and more effective. The Herbst appliance gently moves your upper and lower jaws into a better alignment, helping to make sure that orthodontic treatment isn’t undone by a poorly aligned bite. Both appliances are low-profile and straightforward, and we love using them to help our patients!
