Forsus

Forsus in Prosper

Advanced Oral Appliances

At Bietsch Orthodontics, we offer our patients the Forsus appliance for braces, which is an alternative to headgear that gives our patients many benefits, such as possibly eliminating the need for jaw surgery, improving the fit of teeth, and promoting growth for our teen patients. The best news about the Forsus is that it's well hidden inside the cheek and back of the mouth. The Forsus is also easy to wear and maintain for patients of all ages. Dr. Bietsch provides patients with a complimentary consultation in his office so we can discuss this treatment in further detail.

For more information on the Forsus, call us today at (972) 934-6222 or contact us online.

What Is the Forsus?

The Forsus is used for patients that have an upper jaw excessively forward of the lower jaw. They cannot be taken off of the braces unless Dr. Bietsch removes them. Patients find that the Forsus is easier to wear than headgear and in the end the outcome is the same or better than if the patient wore headgear.

You can expect to have an adjustment period to the new springs (Forsus) in your mouth. Soreness in the treatment area is not uncommon. Each patient has a different level of pain tolerance, but should expect the mouth, teeth, and/or gums to be tender for several days.

A few benefits of the Forsus include:

  • Provides faster results than traditional headgear
  • Comfortable and convenient
  • Can be removed once the correction is complete even if the braces are not ready to come off
  • You can take over-the-counter pain reliever to help ease the pain during the adjustment period

Forsus - Aftercare

We advise our patients with the Forsus to stay away from sticky, chewy, and hard foods that can potentially break or interfere with their function. It is very important to take care of your teeth with proper brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash when you have a Forsus applied to your braces to prevent unnecessary bacteria and food debris in the mouth, which promotes gum disease and tooth decay.

It is also still very important to keep all of your dental appointments for check-ups and dental cleanings with your primary dentist when you have braces. This way, your dentist can detect if you have tooth decay or if you are not properly brushing and flossing your teeth while the braces are on.

If you are concerned about the appearance of your teen's teeth, call us at (972) 934-6222 or contact us online today.

Patient Experiences

Opinions We Cherish Most
  • “I chose to see Dr. Bietsch from a referral from a friend. I am so happy that I did. The entire consult was all about my son and never about the doctor. I was so impressed that I chose to see him myself for some orthodontic work.”

    - Amy
  • “We love Dr. Bietsch's office. It's very easy to find a qualified orthodontist, but more difficult to find the combination of highly qualified, and caring. I feel like going above and beyond, is just normal for Dr. Bietsch and his staff.”

    - Kelly
  • “I was walked through each x-ray, necessary procedure and plan to align a jaw, straighten teeth, and make sure both my children and I were going to be happy with the results. Very impressed.”
