Bite Correction at Harwell & Cook Orthodontics

Say Goodbye To Your Bite Misalignment Issues!

Why Should I Get My Bite Corrected?

It’s more important than you think!

Jaw Pain

With a misaligned bite, you or your child are at risk for some serious jaw pain, like TMJ syndrome. The longer your bite goes untreated, the worse the pain can become.

Speech Issues

Did you know that having a misaligned jaw can cause speech issues? Having improper jaw alignment can make it hard to say certain sounds and words.

Difficulty Brushing and Flossing

If your jaw is misaligned, it might make some places pretty hard to reach. This can make necessary things such as brushing and flossing difficult.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Bite Correction

Harwell & Cook Orthodontics can correct your bite in up to six months.
The Carriere Appliance is the most common device we use. This device moves the upper and lower teeth for a more aligned bite.
The Carriere Appliance attaches to the canine tooth and first molar on each side of the mouth on the outside of the teeth. Then a rubber band is hooked from the top tooth to the bottom tooth on each side. The appliance puts light pressure on the canine and molars, moving them at the same time to correct your bite.
Typically, bite correction and braces (or clear aligners such as Spark and Invisalign) are used in conjunction to get you to your best smile. Correcting your bite before moving into the next phase of orthodontic treatment can decrease your overall treatment time as well.
All you need to bring to your bite consultation appointment is your smile and any questions you may have.
With this bite correction device, you can brush and floss as normal.
