The ‘Special Techniques’ that we may use
The Herbst Appliance
The Herbst can be used alongside a fixed brace to help treat a patient’s overjet. An overjet is when you close your upper and lower teeth together but the front teeth are protruding forward, which leaves a gap between the upper and lower sets of teeth. The Herbst device works by stopping your lower jaw from falling backwards and helps to promote a healthy bone growth on your lower jaw. This helps to make your bottom jaw meet nicely with your top jaw.
