Herbst and Forsus Appliance

Herbst and Forsus appliances are used in conjunction with braces to normalize any discrepancies between the upper and lower jaws.

These appliances, by posturing the patient’s lower jaw in a forward position, over time promotes growth in pubertal adolescents, helping to eliminate excessive overbites, improve the fit of teeth and possibly prevent the need for jaw surgery. The major advantage of this system over headgear or elastics is that its effectiveness does not rely on patient cooperation.
