Correcting bites without headgear
The Carriere Motion Appliance uses revolutionary orthodontic advancements to provide patients with more difficult or advanced cases the option to forego headgear. Here at Graham Gardner Orthodontics, we are committed to giving patients in our Winchester clinic greater comfort and improved results with technologies such as this.
What is it?
The Carriere Motion Appliance is an orthodontic device developed to correct a bite without removing permanent teeth that have erupted incorrectly. The effects are similar to headgear but does not require a bulky or embarrassing appliance.
How does it work?
The appliance pushes upper teeth back to create a corrected bite prior to braces.
- First, your orthodontist creates an anchor point on a lower back molar. Then a straight bar is attached to the upper teeth on both sides of your mouth.
- An elastic band will be attached from the upper bar to the lower anchor to adjust the bite.
When the elastics are worn regularly, your bite can be corrected in just a few months, depending on the severity of your case.
Looking for a second opinion?
If you or your child has been told that you require extractions of permanent teeth in order to proceed with braces treatment, our team welcomes you to contact us for a second opinion consultation (£200.00). Our specialist orthodontist is trained in the most complex cases and can help make a recommendation to you.Book a free consultation
