We work closely with Dr. Luis Carrière on the development of the
Carriere Philosophy and portfolio of cutting-edge orthodontic products.
The Carriere System incorporates fast, natural, and gentle forces to correct Class II and Class III malocclusions at the beginning of treatment with Motion 3D™ 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 3D 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 3D 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 the Motion 3D Class II Appliance as an alternative to the Herbst or headgear and the Motion 3D Class III Appliance 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 3D Appliance’s low forces are biologically compatible during the Class II treatment.
Dr. Luis Carrière earned his dental degree from the University of Complutense in Madrid in 1991. He received his Master of Science in Orthodontics from University of Barcelona in 1994. In 2006, he received his Doctorate in Orthodontics, Cum Laude, from the University of Barcelona.
In May 1995, Dr. Carrière became the proud recipient of the “Joseph E. Johnson Award” from the American Association of Orthodontists. He has also won the International Design Award Delta Gold ADI-FAD 2009 with the “Carriere Distalizer™ MB”.
Dr. Carrière is the inventor of both the internationally known Carriere SLX 3D Self-Ligating Bracket and the Carriere Motion 3D Appliance. He is a world-renown lecturer on these products, in addition to many other topics.
Dr. Luis Carrière also maintains his private practice in the Carrière Orthodontic Centre in Barcelona, Spain.
In these courses, you will master the benefits of the Carriere System for orthodontic treatment efficiencies, shorter treatment times and long-term aesthetic results.
With its sleek, aesthetic and non-invasive design, the Motion 3D Class II Correction Appliance provides greater comfort and shortens treatment time by up to four months.
The Motion 3D Class III Appliance is a minimally invasive appliance intended to treat Class III malocclusions without extractions, orthognathic surgery, or facemasks.
Designed specifically to work seamlessly with Motion 3D Appliances and provide optimum results for your orthodontic treatments. Our oral elastics are available in two force levels.
Full M-D slot coverage, provides unmatched rotational control, correction preservation, and faster treatment times.
SLX 3D Self-Ligating Buccal Tubes incorporate all the amazing features of SLX 3D bracket system.
