Herbst appliance

Dear Colleagues,

according to recent literature, Herbst appliance is worldwide accepted as most efficient Class II corrector. I use it treating both growing and non growing patients since 2004. Up until now more than 600 cases have been treated in our clinics and I am happy to share some of them in Galerija of this website.

We also wrote the guidelines on how to install the appliance and proceed with the treatment. You can find it in pdf.
Also, a few videos have been made to see the process.

The appliance I use is made by Ormco company, but you can also make the custom crowns in your labs and proceed with the same strategy or develop something new.

I hope this information will help.
