Carriere Motion Appliance

If you have a serious bite alignment issue, then the Carriere® motion appliance might be the best option for your smile. This sleek appliance can adjust the position of the back teeth in order to simplify future orthodontic treatment.

Are you interested in straightening your smile in a short amount of time? Many people are, and if this is the case for you, talk to our orthodontist, Dr Richard Risinger, about the Carriere® system. The Carriere system is made of sleek, clear material and fits snugly against your teeth. When it comes to orthodontic treatment, many patients think only of their front teeth since they are the most visible. However, the Carriere system works with the canines and back teeth to achieve results that can improve your bite and the effectiveness of future orthodontic treatment.

The appliance and system are comfortable and have the added advantage of shortening your treatment time. In some cases, orthodontic treatments have been shortened by as much as four months. They can be used in conjunction with other appliances and have been proven to be very effective in moving molars and premolars into their proper alignments. It is most often used before you begin wearing braces or start your clear aligner treatment. The Carriere system will allow Dr. Risinger to create more predictable results, which means your time wearing braces or your aligner will be less, and the experience will be more comfortable and convenient.

The Carriere® orthodontic appliance is typically recommended as the first phase of orthodontic treatment, before braces or other treatment is provided. This appliance works to correct bad bites and reduce the amount of time you need to wear braces.

Bad bites fall into three basic classifications, varying in terms of the severity of the bite problem (Class I, Class II and Class III). There are many types of bad bites, including overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites. The Carriere appliance works to correct these bites before you receive orthodontic treatment, allowing your teeth to have enough space to move into their proper positions easily and without complications. The appliance itself is designed to be as non-invasive and aesthetic as possible, providing you with a treatment that is both discreet and effective. The end result of your treatment should help to improve your oral health and function, as well as give you a more effective overall orthodontic treatment.

Benefits of the Carriere orthodontic appliance include:

  • Reduced overall treatment time

  • Less time spent in our office
  • Greater ease in maintaining good oral hygiene throughout treatment
