RPE Herbst

The screw attaching the arm to the frame of the Herbst can work loose with chewing. The screw itself is contained in a casing and cannot fall into the mouth. It is possible to use the small Allen key provided to reattach the arm. This can be tricky so please contact us to discuss the best approach and make an appointment.

If a band is loose do not activate the appliance.  A loose band may feel sharp or cause the gum to swell. It is important to keep the area clean and call us to arrange a time to us to recement it for you. Should the appliance come out please keep it and bring it to your appointment.
