At Anglia Orthodontics, we set out to straighten your teeth and to give you the confidence to smile without feeling self-conscious. We do this by carefully analysing your teeth to see which type of orthodontic appliance you could benefit from.
In some instances, you could benefit from initial treatment with the Carriere Appliance. This is what is known as a motion appliance and it’s designed to start moving your teeth to prepare them for orthodontic treatment. It also has the added benefit of reducing your overall treatment time.
What is the Carriere Appliance?
The Carriere Appliance is a small correction appliance which is fitted to the side of your teeth. Extremely discreet and comfortable to wear, it works with small elastic bands to apply pressure to your teeth to guide them into position. This appliance helps with the preliminary movement of your teeth, setting them up to receive more complex orthodontic treatment with appliances such as Invisalign aligners or traditional metal braces.
Who can wear the Carriere Appliance?
The Carriere Appliance is a great first appliance for many of our younger patients. Small and comfortable in the mouth, it can get them used to wearing an appliance and what’s involved in the process of orthodontic treatment. It is also an effective appliance for our adult patients.
Benefits of the Carriere Appliance
There are many benefits to having the Carriere Appliance fitted as your first appliance. These include:
Easy appliance to wear with no cheek or lip irritation
Small and discreet in the mouth so no-one will notice you’re wearing it
Doesn’t affect your speech
It’s still easy to brush and clean your teeth, keeping up your oral hygiene routine
It reduces the amount of time you need to wear braces or Invisalign aligners for later on.
