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.
