Carriere Motion Class II
GOING FROM CLASS II TO CLASS I HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER
The Carriere Distalizer Appliance is a direct bond appliance that attaches to the maxillary canine and first permanent molar, providing a simple procedure for turning complex Class II cases into a Class I platform. Once a Class I condition is achieved, malocclusions become easier to treat and can be finished with your preferred orthodontic technique. Since there are no competing forces in the mouth when using this appliance, average Class II correction can usually be achieved in just three to four months.
Most effective in treating Class II symmetrical and asymmetrical malocclusions without the need for extractions.
May also be used in many Class I cases with mesially positioned maxillary molars.
Growing patients are ideal, but adults may be treated as well.
Fixed dentition Class II cases with fully erupted molars are candidates for Phase 1 treatment to establish a Class I platform.
