Herbst Appliance: Before and After
I treated this 13-year-old male non-extraction with a Herbst appliance to correct his overbite in about 24 months. I prefer to use this appliance rather than traditional headgear. I find that most people really do tolerate this appliance very well. Of course, it does take time to get used to the device. Most people are eating and talking normally after 1 week.
