The Carriere Appliance is a small correction appliance which is fitted to the side of your top teeth. Extremely discreet and comfortable to wear, it works with small elastic bands to apply pressure to your teeth to guide them into position, whilst wearing either a retainer or Invisalign aligners on the bottom teeth. This appliance helps with the preliminary movement of your teeth, setting them up to receive more complex orthodontic treatment with appliances such as Invisalign aligners or fixed braces.
The Carriere Appliance is a great first appliance for many of our younger patients as well as our adult patients. Small and comfortable in the mouth, this means you get used to wearing the appliance and scanning with your Dental Monitoring scan box.
