Herbst Appliance

One of the most common orthodontic issues we see in our Lake Charles, LA office is the protruding of the upper jaw and teeth as the lower jaw is further back than it should be. To redirect the growth of the lower jaw, the Herbst appliance prevents the lower jaw from moving backward and encourages it to move forward.

Temporary Anchorage Device

Temporary anchorage devices, or TADs, are strong, comfortable devices made from miniature biocompatible titanium alloy screws that are positioned in your mouth to serve as an anchor to allow Dr. Lefort to move your teeth in a more efficient, controlled way. The anchorage device assists in tooth movement to help your teeth position themselves into the correct locations in your mouth without the use of headgear.

State-Of-The-Art Technology

Our office uses the most state-of-the-art technology available to help create the smile you want, which is why we use the iTero® digital impression system, by Align Technology. Our digital impression system replaces the uncomfortable, unpleasant-tasting, messy and sometimes inaccurate traditional putty impressions. No bulky trays or sticky putty needed!

Using a digital scanner, we will take three-dimensional (3-D) digital images, or impressions, of your teeth and bite. These impressions will help us formulate a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific orthodontic needs and desires. We can also use them to visually show you your treatment options and help us keep you up-to-date on your treatment progress.

After your specific treatment plan has been chosen, the digital impressions allow us to create customized bracket trays that we use to place your brackets onto your teeth, all at one time, with increased efficiency and overall effectiveness.
