No Headgear

Herbst (Non-Headgear treatment)

herbstThe Herbst appliance can treat the discrepancy that occurs when the upper teeth protrude beyond the lower by encouraging the lower jaw to catch up in growth. Even though the Herbst appliance prevents the lower jaw from moving backward, opening and closing movement still occur easily, and patients do not have any problems learning to chew their food with their lower jaw in this new position.
