What Is A Herbst Appliance?
A Herbst appliance is used to correct overjet issues and misalignment with the upper and lower jaw. It is named after its inventor, Dr. Emil Herbst. Herbst appliances can be worn with braces or they can be used as a singular orthodontic treatment.
The Herbst device works to gently apply force with the help of supportive stainless steel bands that are bonded to your four back molars with two telescopic attachments, which promotes growth between the upper and lower jaw. Thus, this orthodontic appliance helps in correcting the overbite.
What You Need To Know About Using A Herbst Appliance
Typically, the Herbst appliance is worn for 12 to 15 months, but the duration can vary depending on the individual case and the severity of the overbite.
Patients may experience some discomfort initially, and they might need to adjust to speaking and eating with the appliance. Regular check-ups and adjustments by the orthodontist are necessary to monitor progress and make any necessary changes to the appliance.
After the Herbst braces are removed, patients may still require a period of wearing braces to fine-tune the alignment of the teeth and ensure a stable bite.
