Reverse Pull Headgear

Achieving Optimal Jaw Alignment and Facial Aesthetics with a Reverse Pull Headgear

Burke & Redford Orthodontists stand at the forefront of innovative orthodontic care, led by orthodontists Dr. Ryan Redford and Dr. Michael Burke. Their expertise in using reverse pull headgear, which is a specialized orthodontic device, has transformed the smiles, bites, and oral health of countless children and teenagers. This personalized approach enhances jaw alignment and facial aesthetics, establishing a new standard for orthodontic excellence.

The Magic of Reverse Pull Headgear: A Brief Guide

  1. Understanding the Device: Also known as a facemask, the reverse pull headgear corrects malocclusions, specifically Class III, or an underbite. This condition, characterized by the lower jaw protruding forward (or the upper jaw being retrusive), results in the lower front teeth setting forward of the upper front teeth.
  2. The Mechanism: The headgear applies controlled, gentle forces to the upper jaw, pulling it forward into better alignment with the lower jaw. This balances the jaw relationship, contributing to an overall harmonious facial appearance.
  3. How it Differs from Correcting an Underbite with Braces or Invisalign: The headgear results in upper jaw movement (forward). Braces or Invisalign, on the other hand, simply tip teeth forward or backward without the benefit of jaw movement. In some cases, movement of teeth is sufficient to correct an underbite. In other cases, jaw movement is critical to success.

The Impact of Reverse Pull Headgear on Class III Malocclusion

Class III malocclusion poses functional and aesthetic challenges. Thankfully, proper utilization of reverse pull headgear offers an effective solution.

Key Benefits of Treatment

  1. Facial Aesthetic Improvement: By correcting the skeletal imbalance, facial aesthetics significantly improve, resulting in a more balanced and harmonious appearance.
  2. Enhanced Dental Function: Proper alignment of the jaws leads to improved biting, chewing, and speaking functions.
  3. Boosted Oral Health: With correct jaw alignment, it’s easier to maintain oral hygiene, reducing the risk of periodontal disease and tooth decay.

Promoting Optimal Growth with Reverse Pull Headgear

Beyond addressing underbites, reverse pull headgear plays a pivotal role in encouraging optimal jaw relationships. It is particularly beneficial during the growth phase of a child (ages 7-10), where the headgear stimulates forward movement of the upper jaw. This ensures proper proportions between the jaws and improves overall facial harmony.
