There are a lot of factors that can contribute to orthodontic abnormalities. One possible factor is limited bone growth in the jaws, causing crowding and misalignment. The Forsus Fatigue Resistant Device is used to promote growth in teen patients, allowing them to avoid surgery.
Getting a Forsus placed is easy. It takes just one appointment and no lab work is needed. You do not need to adjust it each day; instead, it provides a continuous force to help the bones and teeth get into proper position. It requires minimal maintenance, making it an ideal appliance to have.
Forsus is designed with a low profile, which makes it more comfortable than other appliances in its class. It does not poke into the cheeks and it does not inhibit speaking, eating, or drinking. There is no headgear needed either, making it a more discreet option.
Forsus has an open coil spring design. The goal of this design is to make it easy to clean when brushing and prevent gaps that could trap food. You do not need to do anything special to clean it. However, certain foods should be avoided.
Forsus applies constant pressure, which means it is always working. The appliance has been proven excellent at the work it does, so you can trust in it. Once everything is in place, it is easily removed in our office.
