Carriere appliance

In some situations, a smile could benefit from a pre-treatment appliance to help promote alignment in the jaws, create better facial symmetry, and more.

What is it?

Our Carriere appliance is a low-impact solution with significant benefits. It’s used to correct misalignment in the back teeth before beginning braces or Invisalign® treatments. This promotes pre-treatment movement and faster results.

How does it work?

The Carriere appliance is gently affixed to the side of your front teeth and back molars, where it can apply a constant force that promotes movement. Patients generally wear the appliance for six months prior to their braces or clear aligners.
