Forsus Braces

Forsus™

What is Forsus™?

Forsus™ is known as a Fatigue Resistance Device that is often used in adolescents to encourage growth. It is used to correct overbites, improve the fit of teeth in a row, and can even avert the need for jaw surgery. The device is a set of springs that are fitted onto metal or clear braces to aid in the repositioning of the upper and lower jaw lines by applying a continual light amount of force.

Wearing Your Forsus™ Appliance

Your Forsus™ appliance can be installed in just one appointment at Durrett Orthodontics in Tampa, FL. No one will even notice the extra appliance resting in your mouth and allows you a full range of motion to continue with your daily life freely. Like any work associated with braces, it will require an adjustment period to get used to having a new appliance in your mouth – you may have to relearn how to chew. It may also take some practice to get the hang of cleaning them. However, the upside is that it doesn’t cause you pain or discomfort like other appliances often do and easily brushes clean.

Your current treatment plan can be continued with the addition of Forsus™ since it easily attaches to your braces. Normally, the springs will be in place for anywhere from three months to a year, depending on the severity of the overbite.

Contact our Durrett Orthodontics office in Tampa, FL today for an evaluation and see if Forsus™ can help improve your smile. We look forward to meeting with you and beginning your treatment plan!
