Will these appliances actually change my bite?
« on: 09. October 2022, 07:48:19 AM »
Hello! I'm interested in the RPE with Braces and Telescope. But before I decide I was wondering. Does anyone know if the Telescope/Herbst will have the unwanted side effect of actually changing my bite?

If you don’t turn the screw no expansion will happen!

What about the Telescope part though?

I’ve been wondering this too, but I have to think that the telescope part could only affect my bite if I wear it every minute of every day for an extended period of time, just like actual prescribed appliances won’t change your bite if you don’t wear them consistently

Unless you request otherwise the herbst part should be set by the shop so that it doesn't move your jaw any further than the normal resting position. And then it's no issue at al to wear it for long periods.

Yeah, I guess that makes sense.

Got it. Thanks!
