Efficient, Reliable Class II Correction
The Forsus Fatigue Resistant Device promotes growth in adolescents, helping to eliminate excessive overbites, improve the fit of teeth, and possibly prevent the need for jaw surgery.
Your Forsus appliance is installed 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 to move your jaw and teeth into their correct positions.
The Forsus appliance has a low profile. It sits in the back of your mouth, so no one will even notice it's there. Patient's enjoy that there is no extraoral component for this appliance. Plus, it allows for a full range of motion so your speech and eating habits won't be affected.
The open coil spring is designed to be easy to brush clean and there are no gaps to trap food. You'll be able to continue your oral hygiene habits as usual without having to worry about cleaning around a bulky appliance. As with any orthodontic appliance, hard and sticky food should be avoided and brushing is always recommended after every meal.
The constant force given by the Forsus appliance 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.
It is important to remember that each patient is unique and the goals of treatment can differ between patients. The type of appliance used for your child's Class II correction is dependent on a number of variables. Feel free to contact our office to learn more about the Forsus.
