Thanks for the comment and questions, Martha. Because the Herbst works with the growth potential of the lower jaw, it needs to be worn for several months to capture several growth spurts. Typically we have the patients wear it for 9-12 months. The beauty is that the appointments, once the Herbst is in place, are shorter and less frequent. And if all goes according to plan we are finished with the whole treatment just a few months after the appliance is removed.

How long of a process is this? I understand that not everyone is the same case but in general how long does the appliance need to stay in the mouth?
