Carriere® System

We work closely with Dr. Luis Carrière on the development of the
Carriere Philosophy and portfolio of cutting-edge orthodontic products.

Carriere System Philosophy

The Carriere System incorporates fast, natural, and gentle forces to correct Class II and Class III malocclusions at the beginning of treatment with Motion Appliances, and then transition to the SLX 3D Self-Ligating Bracket System to provide efficiencies over traditional mechanics. This new, unique, and innovative approach ensures that you address not only the patient’s occlusion, but their total-facial harmony.



The Carriere System shortens overall treatment time by up to 6 months as it treats Class II correction at the beginning of the orthodontic treatment, when there are no competing forces in the mouth caused by brackets or other appliances.



The low force of the Motion Appliance is gentle on your patients, and it’s low-profile design is very comfortable to wear. By treating the Class II platform first, it simplifies the entire treatment for you, and provides greater comfort for your patients.



Mimicking a human hip ball-socket joint, the Motion Appliance allows the first molar to rotate and upright in its natural and correct finishing position, producing a continuous, natural, and uniform force for distal molar movement with controlled rotation and tipping correction.

Using Motion Appliances on Class II as an alternative to the Herbst or headgear and Motion Appliances for Class III instead of a complex surgical procedure or the reverse pull facemask, both provide a unique opportunity to change the occlusal plane and achieve a Class I platform consistently as treatment begins and when the patient is most compliant. A Class II correction can usually be completed in an average of 3-6 months.

Built-in stops engineered in the appliance prevent the molars from over-rotating and the crowns from distal tipping. The Motion Appliance’s low forces are biologically compatible during the Class II treatment.
