Herbst Appliance

An Herbst appliance is used to correct an overbite within 12 months. Over time, the appliance encourages the movement of the lower jaw and upper molars into proper alignment. Herbst is most commonly used in younger patients, while the jaw is still developing.

How Does Surgery Free Orthodontics Works?

The Herbst appliance works by keeping the lower jaw from shifting backward during the opening and closing movement of your mouth. The appliance is attached to your back molars on the upper and lower jaws with bands that are set into position. Patients using the Herbst Appliance do not have any concerns about learning how to chew food with their lower jaw in this new position.

Palatal Expander

The Palatal Expander is used by applying light pressure to the upper jaw. This pressure is utilized to expand your upper jaw. Dr. Karl will be able to provide simply instructions to ensure that the expansion of your jaw is in proper alignment. In order to retain your results, your palatal expander should be worn until instructed by your orthodontist to solidify your treatment.
