Dr. Lindsey may recommend the use of a Carriere® correction appliance to correct a bad bite prior to providing braces or other orthodontic treatment. The Carriere correction appliance is used as the first phase of orthodontic treatment, reducing the amount of time that you need to wear braces and helping you to achieve a more beautiful smile. We invite you to call Lindsey Orthodontics at 720-733-8388 to learn more about the Carriere correction appliance in Castle Rock and Centennial, Colorado.
Bad bites fall into three basic classifications. Class II bites, more traditionally called “overbites”, occur when the lower molars are farther toward the back of the mouth than the upper molars, causing the front teeth and jaw to project further forward. The Carriere system Motion 3D Class II Appliance is an innovative system designed to move Class II bites into the correction position before orthodontic treatment, and to provide appropriate spacing in which your teeth can move. This appliance is designed to be as non-invasive and aesthetic as possible.
Benefits of using the Carriere correction appliance include:
- Less time spent in our office
- Greater ease in maintaining good oral hygiene during treatment
- Reduced treatment time with braces later on
