Types Of Appliances

Elastics (Rubber Bands)

Elastics help amend the fit of upper and lower teeth by applying mild pressure to your jaw. They work very well when worn as directed. Elastics are available in a variety of colors.


Used as an alternative to headgear, a Forsus helps correct overbites and reduces the need for jaw surgery later in life.

Palatal Expander

At Dentistry At Sea Girt we will advise you on when to adjust your expander. This appliance places gentle pressure on your upper molars in order to widen your upper jaw.


Positioners move teeth into their final position. At the positioned stage, you should be entering your final stages of orthodontic treatment.

Separators or Spacers

Separators are small rubber circles placed between teeth to push teeth apart.
