The Carriere appliance is usually used as the first phase of orthodontic treatment and is used to correct bad bites and reduce your overall treatment time. There are several types of bad bites (overbites, underbites, cross bites and open bites), which vary in terms of the severity of the bite problem. Carriere appliances work to correct the bites before orthodontic treatment. This allows the teeth to have enough space to move without complications. The appliance itself is designed to be as non-invasive and aesthetic as possible in order to give you a more discreet treatment.

Some benefits of the Carrier appliance include:

  • Reduced treatment time overall
  • More comfortable treatment
  • Less time spent in our office
  • Easier to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment
