Your Forsus appliance is installed in one appointment and doesn’t require additional lab work, so you won’t have to wait to begin treatment. There are no daily adjustments to make because the appliance provides a continuous, light force to move your jaw and teeth into their correct positions.
The constant force given by the Forsus appliance means that it works without you having to do anything. Even while you sleep, Forsus is helping to move your jaw and teeth into alignment. The appliance works with your existing braces and wires, so there is no need to interrupt treatment.
The open coil spring is designed to be easy to brush clean and there are no gaps to trap food. You’ll be able to continue oral hygiene habits as usual without worrying about cleaning around a bulky appliance. As with braces, hard and sticky food should be avoided and brushing is always recommended after every meal.
The Forsus appliance has a low profile and does not bow into the cheek like other Class II correction appliances. Plus, it allows for a full range of motion so your speech and eating habits won’t be affected. The best part about the Forsus appliance is that there is no headgear required. It sits in the back of your mouth near the brackets on your teeth, so no one will notice it’s there.
