Don’t want to wear headgear? We have a solution! Dr. Jeff and Dr. Soo can provide you with a Carriere® distalizing appliance to correct your bite without using headgear or removing any of your permanent teeth. This simple appliance works to move your upper teeth into their proper position before you begin treatment with braces or clear aligners.

When you receive a Carriere distalizer, our orthodontists will first create an anchor point for the appliance. The appliance will then be connected to the anchor, and an elastic band will be attached to the appliance. The appliance will then work to move your teeth into the correct positions. If you are wearing the elastic as directed, this entire process can be completed in a matter of months!

Benefits of using a Carriere appliance include:

  • Reduced overall treatment time
  • A more comfortable treatment
  • Less time spent in our office
  • Greater ease in maintaining good oral hygiene with brushing and flossing

After you complete your Carriere treatment, our orthodontists will be able to begin your regular orthodontic treatment with braces or clear aligners.

We invite you to call Shirck Orthodontics to schedule a consultation and learn more about Carriere distalizers in Pataskala, New Albany, Westerville, Newark and Powell, Ohio.
