When you have an overbite, it can be really frustrating. It changes the appearance of your teeth and your smile. It’s nothing that you can change on your own. You are going to need help from our orthodontist in Dallas to find the best way to get the results that will give you an amazing smile. In the past, you might have had teeth pulled to help correct your overbite. Headgear was typical also. While headgear was effective, it was not discreet. Thanks to changes in the world of orthodontics and advances, you now have the Carriere Distalizer as an option to help you to align your teeth.
Understanding the Carriere Distalizer
The Carriere Distalizer is an orthodontic appliance that is worn inside your mouth, instead of on the outside. It is attached to a molar and cuspid. It can be applied on one side or it may be used on both sides of your mouth. Once the Carriere Distalizer is in place, it will be worn for multiple months. This appliance will begin to shift your teeth to correct your overbite. After it has been in place the optimal amount of time, it will be removed so that your orthodontic treatment plan can be continued. Braces are typically the next step to shift your teeth gradually until you have a proper bite.
When you have a proper bite, your teeth will be easier to keep clean. Most importantly, you will have the smile you always wanted. You will also find that you can avoid issues like sleep apnea and TMJ disorders when your teeth are aligned the way that they should be. The Carriere Distalizer will give your teeth a jump-start in the right direction, easing your path for orthodontic treatment.
