Default Title: Attachment of Herbst mechanism to maxillary arch

FYI HERBST MECHANISM


Title: Attachment of Herbst mechanism to maxillary arch
Document: United States Patent 4551095
Abstract: Attachment of a Herbst mechanism to the maxillary arch by use of a headgear tube is disclosed. A shaft of a length greater than that of the tube passes completely through the tube so as to project both mesially and distally from the tube. The connection of the Herbst mechanism is to that portion of the shaft which projects distally from the tube. A stop is disposed on the shaft mesial of the tube to forcefully bear against the tube with a distally directed force when corrective force is being developed by the appliance. The stop in its preferred embodiment comprises an adjustable locking device which is selectively positionable on the shaft to set the amount of distal extension of the point of connection of the Herbst mechanism from the tube and thereby limit the distal movement of the lower arch and/or jaw.

Thanks for the info critbunny! I have visited with 2 dentists and 2 orthos. I feel good about going with the permanent retainer and the braces, my son too feels good about going ahead with that procedure. That Herbt mechanism is so scary looking and I am a closterphobic (sp?) person and so it would NEVER work for me if I needed to do it! LOL! I wish I could find a photo of what I saw it to look like at the orthos office on his teeth mold thingy, it was OUT THERE to say the least, especially to an 8 year old. First thing he said when the nurse had left was "no way will they put that in my mouth Mom", I didn't respond, just smiled and thought to myself "I sure hope NOT"!
Thanks again for your input. Everyones advice is helpful to me and supportive I really appreciate it.
