In cases where a patient’s bite is more out of alignment than what elastics alone can handle, a Forsus appliance might be used. A Forsus appliance serves the same purpose as an elastic but is used in cases that require a more thorough treatment. After a full evaluation of your particular needs, our orthodontist, Dr. Charles Gulland, will decide if a Forsus appliance is the correct treatment for your bite. If you have any questions for Gulland Orthodontics, please give us a call at 724-981-3950 or 724-588-2235 or visit our orthodontal office in Hermitage, Pennsylvania.
