Appliances

Forsus

The Forsus is a fatigue resistant device worn by the patient in order to correct a patients bite by moving the upper teeth back and the lower teeth forward.  Using a spring, this appliance allows the jaw to grow into a a proper bite.  It is worn anywhere from 4 to 8 months, or as prescribed by Dr. Tringas. 

Carrieré Distalizer

The Carrieré Distalizing appliance is a fixed appliance (non-removable) that provides a simple procedure for turning complex Class II cases into a Class I platform.  The true advantage of using the Carrieré™ is in conjunction with Invisalign® cases, allowing Dr. Tringas bring a superior smile result for patients who prefer to utilize Invisalign®.  The patient's result is superior than it would have been with Invisalign® alone, as it allows Dr. Tringas to ensure a complete bite correction, while still providing the patient the means to elect straightening and correcting their bite without braces.

Herbst

The Herbst appliance is used when there is an asymmetry of growth between the upper and lower jaws, where the is "underdeveloped" and has poor forward projection.  It works by positioning the lower jaw forward which creates a different muscle pull modifying jaw growth via forward pressures the lower jaw and backward pressure on the upper jaw.

 

 

When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. The retention phase lasts for a minimum of 24 months. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far. Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth.

Testimonials

Our daughter Katie B. has a beautiful smile thanks to Dr. Tringas. He watched her mouth develop over several years before finally putting her in braces. He consulted with her dentist & oral surgeon many times before doing anything. When he felt her mouth was mature enough to benefit from braces he put them on her. She wore them for two years without any problems. My older children who wore braces (put on by other orthodontists) had several cavities after they finished. Katie never had a problem. He is a wonderful, kind & patient doctor. I have highly recommended him many times to my friends. They have all been very pleased. Kathy B.
I remember having braces way back in 1975, you can imagine my surprise when I found out I needed them again in 2007! I was given Dr. Tringas' name by my dentist along with several other prospects. I set up my first appointment and after speaking with Dr. Tringas and his staff I knew I had found my orthodontist. My appointments were prompt and informative. I always felt comfortable and confident with Dr. Tringas and his staff, knowing they had my best interest in mind. I recommend Dr. Tringas to all my friends and anybody looking for an orthodontist who truly cares about his patients. Dr. Tringas and his staff are committed to giving their patients the best possible orthodontic experience, and this makes me SMILE! Jane F.
