If you've ever wondered, there are several types of headgear. The most common type is the cervical pull type. That's the one with the strap that goes behind your neck. Here is Dakota Fanning modeling her reverse-pull type headgear. This is less common and is usually used in kids with a Class III occlusion or at least ones where you are basically trying to stimulate the upper maxilla to grow forward. It is also known as a Delaire "facemask"; you can see why. Dakota has been giving an update to talk show hosts on her progress with her "Braces".
