Sagittal First

The SAGITTAL FIRST™ Philosophy is a ground-breaking approach that standardizes, simplifies, and shortens Class II and Class III treatment.

It employs the Carriere® Motion 3D™ Appliance to treat the AP dimension at the beginning of treatment before placing brackets or aligners. By resolving the most difficult part of treatment first, you can achieve a Class I platform in 3 to 6 months, shortening total treatment time by a minimum of 6 months.1 You know how excited patients and parents become when you mention shorter treatment times!

The Ultimate Success Formula

Standardizes and Simplifies Treatment

  • Utilizes same treatment protocol no matter the malocclusion type
  • Simplifies treatment and planning
  • Eliminates lab time delays with direct-bond placement

Shortens Overall Treatment by up to 6 Months

  • Eliminates competing forces associated with AP correction while wearing fixed appliances
  • Fosters greater patient compliance at the start of treatment, when patient motivation is highest
  • Establishes a Class I platform in 3 to 6 months, faster than any other appliance currently on the market2

Increases Conversion Rates with Same-Day Starts

  • Motion 3D can be bonded immediately after the consultation
  • Takes under 15 minutes to place and educate the patient
  • Minimize extractions to help build your practice

Offers More Treatment Options for Patients

  • Motion 3D provides simple bite correction for clear aligner treatment
  • Offers opportunity to postpone decision about whether to finish with brackets or aligners based on compliance, hygiene, and treatment progress
