FORSUS Class II corrector
Some patients just aren't able to wear their rubber bands enough to get the job done. A Forsus appliance solves that problem. Once it is placed, it keeps working until it is removed by Dr. Ellis. The appliance provides a continuous, light force to move your jaw and teeth into their correct position.
The Forsus appliance has a low profile and does not bow into the cheek like other Class II correction appliances. Plus, 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 there is no external apparatus (headgear) required. It sits in the back of your mouth, so no one will even notice it's there.
The open coil spring is designed to be easy to brush clean 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 foods should be avoided and brushing is always recommended after every meal.
The constant force given by the Forsus appliance means that it works without you having to do anything. Even while you sleep, the 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.
