The increasing popularity of the Herbst appliance can be attributed in large part because of consistent, predictable results using noncompliance appliances. Clinical technique and design advances have moved the Herbst to the forefront as the functional appliance of choice in the correction of skeletal and dental Class II malocclusions. The fixed Herbst is commonly prescribed because it is a noncompliance appliance and is adaptable to patients of all ages accomodating a diversity of treatment protocols.
Hawleys fit into a contemporary practice with a wide range of colors and designs. Patients can make the choice and enhance compliance. The impression can be taken while the fixed appliances are still present which eliminates delays in bracket removal and Hawley seating.
There are many removable and fixed designs from which to choose arch development appliances. They are used as an early treatment modality to generate transverse, mesiodistal or both corrections in individual arches and we can meet your needs for special modifications.
With proper design, expansion appliances may be used to move teeth on either side of the arch unilaterally or bilaterally.
Because the general dentist is the one who cares for the dental needs of the vast majority of growing children, it is imperative that they be able to recognize growth problems as they occur. This will allow them to either actively intervene or immediately refer these patients to the orthodontist.
A habit that is not easy to control is cheek biting. With the help of an appliance it is often possible to change this pattern or at least prevent further damage to the occlusion and tissue from occurring.
