Efficient, Reliable Class II Correction
The Forsus™ Fatigue Resistant Device promotes growth in adolescents, helping to eliminate excessive overbites, improve the fit of teeth, and possibly prevent the need for jaw surgery.
Your Forsus appliance is installed in one appointment and doesn’t require any additional lab work, so you will not have to wait to begin your treatment. There are no daily adjustments because the appliance provides a continuous, light force to move your jaw and teeth into their correct positions.
The Forsus appliance has a low profile and does not bow into the cheek like other Class II correction appliances. It allows for a full range of motion so your speech and eating habits won’t be affected. The best part about the Forsus appliance is that no external apparatus, or headgear required. It sits in the back of your mouth, so no one will even know it’s there.
The open coil spring is designed to be easy to brush and there are no gaps to trap food. You’ll be able to continue your oral hygiene habits as usual without having to worry about cleaning around a bulky appliance. As with any orthodontic appliance, hard and sticky food should be avoided, and you should brush after every meal.
The constant pressure from the Forsus appliance means that it works without you having to do anything. Even while you sleep, Forsus is helping to move your jaw and teeth into alignment. The appliance works with your existing braces and wires, so there is no need to interrupt your planned treatment.
