Headgear vs Motion

Headgears are a thing of the past at Bee Cave Orthodontics. Ask us about Carriere Motion Appliances, the latest technology in correcting overbites and deep bites.


What is the Carriere Motion Appliance?

Utilizing the latest in advanced orthodontic technology, the Motion Appliance ensures a fast, effective and aesthetic first phase treatment. Plus, by jumpstarting your orthodontic care with the Motion Appliance, your overall treatment time is reduced, meaning less time in braces.

Normal treatment time for the appliance is three to five months, but it can depend on your orthodontic case. When the desired movement is reached, Dr. Da Silveira will remove the appliance and will place your braces or aligners to complete your orthodontic care.


Benefits for You

Shorter Treatment Time

The appliance is placed before your braces to move your teeth faster and to spend less time in braces.


Elastics Early On

Elastics are worn at the beginning of your treatment, rather than at the end when you are ready for your braces to come off.


It Looks Great

The unique design makes the appliance hardly noticeable in your mouth.


Speak Normally

Your speech isn’t affected – unlike when wearing other traditional orthodontic appliances.


No Facial Appliance

Avoid the bulky feeling from alternative solutions like invasive headgear, which is worn outside the mouth.


Sleek, Low-Profile Design

The low profile and smooth surface make it comfortable to wear – there’s no poking of your lips or cheeks.


Easy for Good Oral Hygiene

The appliance is easy to clean, plus it’s easy to brush your teeth to keep your mouth free of debris.
