  • Distal JetDistal Jet

    Distal Jet

    The Distal Jet is constructed around a highly efficient piston, and tube principle, coupled with a controlled and defined force delivery. The Distal Jet is uniquely adapted to a bio-mechanic approach to maximize outcomes. Superior distalizer combines simple translation with excellent anchorage control and positive, simple molar retention with one appliance. Typical clinical situations for the Distal Jet are: Class II maxillary protrusion, Class II molar relations resulting from missing or blocked out teeth, and Class II subdivision (unilateral) cases. Expansion can also be achieved by adding a transverse screw.

  • pendex distalizing appliancependex distalizing appliance

    Hilgers Pendex Appliance

    The Pendex Appliance is used to distalize the molars and expand the arch simultaneously. Effective arch development is achieved with .032 TMA wire embedded in acrylic, an expansion screw, and rests on the premolars. It produces a wide swinging arc of force from the midline of the palate to the upper molars producing a pendulum motion of the spring. An adjustment loop can be added to the spring to aid in rotation of the molars. Lingual sheaths are spot welded onto the band and can be provided by the lab.

    Hilgers Pendulum Appliance

    The Pendulum Appliance is used to distalize the molars for the correction of Class II. Effective arch development is achieved with rests on the premolars and a .032 TMA wire embedded in acrylic. It produces a wide swinging arc of force from the midline of the palate to the upper molars producing a pendulum motion of the spring. An adjustment loop can be added to the spring to aid in rotation of the molars. Lingual sheaths are spot welded onto the band and can be provided by the lab.

  • LEONE fastbackLEONE fastback distalizer

    Leone Fast Back

    The “fastback” is an appliance used for the distalization of the upper molars. This device provides the translation movement of the molars using a predetermined amount of pressure. There is no need for the cooperation of the patient maintaining good anchorage control. The principle of this device is based on the compression of Ni-Ti springs (available is 200 or 300 grams) which exert a constant force on the molar. To achieve this result, while still enabling precise control of tooth movement and ensuring the greatest comfort possible for the patient, an arm is fabricated to fit into a small tube (1.1 mm diameter) which is soldered to the palatal surface of the bands on the molars to be distalized. An open Memoria┬« spring is added to the arm and delivers the required force to move the tooth in the desired direction, which is determined by the arm sliding inside the tube.

  • lip-bumperLip Bumper Distalizer

    Lip Bumper

    The Lip Bumper Appliance is a removable device that aids in the distalization of the lower molars. Each bumper is customized to allow an even force from the lip muscle to effectively create space for continued treatment of overcrowding.

  • MDA mini-distalizing-applianceMDA mini distalizing appliance

    MDA – Mini Distalizing Appliance

    The MDA is an appliance used to achieve arch development through expansion of a compact RPE and pre-activated .032 removable TMA springs. The design allows for expansion and distalization to occur in two phases. Once the proper width is complete via the screw, the clinician cuts the wire holding the pre-activated springs to begin distalization. With each expansion appliance, we provide a custom swivel key that has an integrated activation recording tool directly on the handle.

  • T-rex distalizing and expansion applianceT-rex distalizer and expander

    T-Rex Appliance

    The T-Rex Appliance is used to distalize the molars and expand the arch in two phases. Effective arch development is achieved with pre-activated .032 TMA wire, an expansion screw, and rests on the premolars. After expansion, It produces a wide swinging arc of force from the midline of the palate to the upper molars producing a pendulum motion of the spring.  A wire is welded to the band and embedded in the acrylic preventing the activation of the springs while expansion is occurring. When transverse arch development is complete, the clinician cuts the welded wire causing the springs to activate and distalize the molars. An adjustment loop can be added to the spring to aid in rotation of the molars. Lingual sheaths are spot welded onto the band and can be provided by the lab.
