Hanks Herbst

The Hanks Herbst appliance provides an exceptional function in class II orthodontic correction. This appliance repositions the mandible forward to allow for the adaptation of the muscular, skeletal and dental components utilizing a simple to install the telescopic component on the buccal. The Hanks is easy and efficient because screws are integrated directly into the telescoping mechanism reducing the chance for small pieces falling into the patients’ mouth. Its unique ball and socket design provide unrestricted lateral excursion and unparalleled patient comfort. We recommend the Herbst for those difficult patients who have compliance issues with removable appliances
