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

We used Dr. Tringas for my daughter a few years ago when she needed braces and are now back for my son. Dr. Tringas has a great demeanor; he is very calm and easy to talk to. He explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. His staff is always very friendly and approachable. The best part is we never have to wait very long at all to be called for our appointment. I would highly recommend him. Amy V.
Dr.Tringas has been dealing with my sons teeth since he was in the third grade. We know how hard his case was and we have seen the great improvements that have taken place with him. We are very very thankful for everything he and his staff have done for him. Not everyone would have taken the time to talk with him and figure out that his palate needed help... the other sure did not figure it out. Dr. Tringas is the best at what he does and I would tell everyone I know that needs an orthodontist to go to him. Best in the game I say! Jeff V.
