Herbst Appliance

We use the Herbst appliance to correct an overbite by encouraging the lower jaw to move forward, while gently pushing the upper molars backward. This is a fixed appliance, used primarily for younger children who are still growing. We have used it for more mature patients who can benefit from the specialized pressure delivery on a constant basis. Patients will typically wear the Herbst appliance for 12-15 months.
