If you are an orthodontic patient requiring the Class 3 Carriere Appliance for your Invisalign treatment, learn what our board certified orthodontists have planned for you. Here are the four Class 3 Carriere treatment steps:
Step 1: 3D digital imaging of your teeth.
Step 2: Placement of Carriere Distalizer appliances on the lower arch with Invisalign Aligners and attachments on the upper arch. To begin correcting bite issues, elastics are generally worn for 6-9 months depending on compliance.
Step 3: Removal of Carriere Distalizer appliances and placement of lower Invisalign Aligners and attachments. Begin rotating aligners to facilitate movements for the duration of treatment. You will have updated scans and multiple batches of aligners throughout treatment to progress movement as needed.
Step 4: Removal of all attachments and placement of upper and lower clear plastic retainers. Retainers will be worn full time for a few weeks, then 12hrs a day for a year, then night time for a lifetime to stabilize and maintain your hard work.
