Xbow Crossbbow Class 2 Corrector
Mouth with a Corrector

“I have used a variety of Class II correctors over the years—headgear, Jasper Jumpers, Herbst, Flip-lock Herbst, etc. In my experience, nothing can touch the efficiency and effectiveness of the combination of Higgins Xbow and 3M Forsus Correctors to correct moderate to severe adolescent cases.”

Before and After
5 months Xbow followed by 11 months braces

Drs. Miller, Tieu, & Flores-Mir’s Article in the Angle Orthodontist Concluded:
“Xbow® patients finished six months faster and had braces on for ten fewer months compared to patients with braces and Class II springs only.”


Before Example 2
After Example 2

This is an example of the first phase only treatment that saves the family the cost of phase 2 and shows what Xbow® and partial upper braces can accomplish.
