Carriere® Motion Appliance

Your Specialist Orthodontist may suggest you begin treatment with a Carriere® Motion Appliance which will help address misalignments before Invisalign® therapy or braces treatment has begun.

What is a Carriere® Appliance?

A Carriere® Appliance is a smooth, sleek instrument known as a “distalizer.” It attaches to the upper canine tooth and permanent first molar on each side of the mouth. An anchor is installed to a tooth on each side of the lower jaw, and the Carriere appliance is linked to these using a rubber band.

Will I need a Carriere® Appliance?

The Carriere® Motion Appliance is used to address major misalignments in the back teeth. It can help to decrease the severity of a misalignment and better prepare the mouth for successful Invisalign® or braces treatment. When you come in for a free consultation, your Specialist Orthodontist will be able to see if you need (or would benefit from) a Carriere® Appliance.
