Efficient, Reliable Class II Correction
For adolescent patients with excessive overbites, the Forsus Fatigue Resistant Device can help promote jaw growth, improving the fit of their teeth and possibly preventing the need for future jaw surgery.
The Forsus appliance does not require any lab work, and can be installed in one appointment. That means it can begin working right away. The appliance offers a constant, light force to help guide your jaw and teeth to their correct positions, so patients don’t have to worry about making any daily adjustments as some appliances require.
Some Class II correction appliances can bow the cheek and can make speaking and eating more difficult. The Forsus has a low profile, so speaking and eating won’t be disrupted in any way. There is no headgear associated with it, and because it sits in the back of the mouth, no one will even notice it is there.
The Forsus can conveniently fit into your lifestyle. The open coil spring is easy to clean, and there is no need to worry about food or other debris getting trapped. You can continue your regular oral care routine without brushing and flossing around an appliance. You will need to avoid any hard or sticky foods while wearing the Forsus appliance, however.
The Forsus is effective, and works without you having to do anything. It applies a constant force, meaning even while you’re asleep, your teeth and jaw are being guided to their ideal positions. Forsus works with braces, so you don’t have to worry about interrupting planned treatment for Forsus.
