HTH - Hanks Telescoping Herbst®

One Piece Design
Installing the appliance is easy and efficient because screws are integral to the telescoping mechanism. No more fumbling with separate pieces falling into the patient's mouth.

Reduced Breakage
The telescoping mechanism will not disengage like a traditional Herbst* appliance, greatly reducing the number of emergency appointments.

Unique Ball and Socket Design
Provides unrestricted lateral excursion and unparalleled patient comfort.
