The Forsus Fatigue Resistant Device is sometimes used as a preventative care treatment for adolescents. It promotes jaw growth in youths. This helps to eliminate future excessive overbites, improve the overall fit of the teeth, and possible prevent the need for jaw surgery.
The Forsus device is installed in a single appointment. It also doesn’t require additional lab work, which prevents any delay in beginning treatment. These don’t require daily adjustments either, because the Forsus device provides a continuous force to help move the jaw and the teeth into their correct positions.
This device has a rather low profile, which prevents it from bowing into the cheek, unlike many other correctional appliances. It also allows for a full range of motion, which prevents any disruption to your speech and eating habits. Additionally, the Forsus appliance doesn’t require any external apparatus. It is completely unnoticeable, because it sits in the back of your mouth.
The Forsus device is designed with an open coil spring that allows it to be easy to brush clean. It eliminates gaps that may trap food and advance overall tooth decay. These devices allow you to continue oral hygiene habits without interruption, eliminating the need to worry about relearning how to clean with a bulky appliance. Hard and sticky food should still be avoided and you should attempt to brush after every meal.
Forsus devices are extremely effective appliances. They provide constant force that allows it to work without any extra effort on your part. The Forsus device helps to move the jaw and teeth into alignment, even during sleeping. These appliances also work with existing braces and wires, which eliminates any interruption of the original orthodontic treatment.
