The Bonded Retainer is used to prevent the recurrence of mild to severe crowding/spacing on the front teeth only.

  Cemented Palatal Expander

The Cemented Palatal Expander (PSA) is an appliance worn in the mouth to expand the upper jaw which creates more space for the teeth and to allow a better fit with the lower jaw.

  Hawley Retainer

The Hawley Retainer is designed with an acrylic piece that fits perfectly on the roof of your mouth or under the tongue. Teeth are held in their positions by a metal wire that runs along the front of the teeth.

  Herbst Appliance

The Herbst Appliance, affectionately known as the “Shock Absorber,” is a bite-jumping device used to enhance the growth of the lower jaw in a forward direction and at the same time, to apply pressure to the upper jaw in a backward direction.

  MARA Appliance

The Mandibular Anterior Repositioning Appliance (MARA) is a bite advancer worn in the mouth to correct your overbite/overjet in the most predictable and efficient manner.

  Removable Palatal Expander

The Removable Palatal Expander (PSA) is an appliance worn in the mouth to expand the upper jaw which creates more space for the teeth and to allow a better fit with the lower jaw.

  Rubber Band Instructions

The use of Elastics/Rubber Bands is an important part of successful treatment. To be effective, they must be worn as directed by our office. If worn properly, rubber bands are very efficient.

 

Spacers/ Separators

A spacer is a device placed between teeth that creates a small space. Spacers/Separators are custom tailored to fit snuggly between each tooth and move them slightly apart.

  Tooth Positioner

Like a retainer,  the Tooth Positioner  holds the teeth in their proper position but also helps to settle the bite. It must be worn 24 hours a day, for at the first 4 to 7 days.
