Class II Malocclusion Appliance

The Forsus appliance is used in order to help move the upper molars back while moving the lower arch forward. Composed of a spring coil rod, the appliance is used while a patient is currently wearing braces. It runs from the upper first molar band down to the lower archwire.

Easy Placement

Your Forus will be placed in one simple appointment. It requires no extra lab work, so you can receive your Forsus and begin correcting your bite immediately!

Taking Care of Your Appliance

You may notice some discomfort initially, so we recommend a soft food diet for the first few days after the appliance is placed. Regular anti-inflammatory medication may help with any pain, if needed. It is important to keep the appliance clean; you may do this by carefully brushing the coil and other metal pieces of the appliance. Also, we recommend that patients not open their mouths very wide, as the appliance may come apart.

If your Forsus appliance breaks, please contact our office immediately to schedule a repair appointment.

How the Forsus Works

The Forsus uses constant pressure and force to gradually move your jaws and teeth into proper alignment. You don’t have to do anything! It works while you are doing any activity – day or night!
