Carriere Distalizer™ From Your Orthodontists in Vernon
It used to be that when a patient with complex bite issues required orthodontic care, headgear was the go-to corrective device. Thankfully, a Carriere Distalizer appliance makes it possible for many patients to rectify these issues without this bulky device.
What is Carriere Distalizer and how does it work?
Offering benefits similar to orthodontic headgear, this appliance pushes back upper teeth to correct a patient’s bite before braces are applied.
In terms of how your doctor applies it, first an anchor point will be created, often with a lower Essex Appliance, a full mandibular fixed appliance, a passive lingual arch, or mini screws. We utilize Carriere appliances on the upper arch (for Class II) and on the lower arch (for Class III) and we often utilize them with both Invisalign and traditional metal braces.
Following a predetermined series of months – and after your doctor has determined that your treatment is complete – the Carriere Distalizer arms will be removed, and your Invisalign or braces treatment will continue to align your teeth, helping you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
