Treatment & Care
Ideally, treatment starts should range from 8-11 years old, and recommended wear time is 21-23 hours a day. Treatment results in a change in overjet of one mm per month. You can add an optional expansion screw to stimulate the growth of the posterior teeth.
Patients should clean daily with toothpaste to prevent the buildup of plaque and odor. Avoid Efferdent and other effervescent solutions, as it may erode components on the appliance. It is recommended to use products like DentaSoak or Retainer Splash.
