  • 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.

  • e-arch lower expandere-arch lower expander

    E-Arch

    Taken from “The Mandibular E-Arch” by Neal Kravitz, the E-arch is a fixed, spring-loaded expander for slow expansion of the maxillary or mandibular arches. Developed by Arnold, and popularized by Berkowitz, the E-arch was invented for maxillary orthopedic expansion in patients with cleft palates. In the mandible, the E-arch can create a modest amount (4 to 5 mm) of arch space in the lower anterior region by orthodontic tipping (rather than orthopedic change) of the lower posterior teeth, as well as distalization of the first molars.

    The appliance consists of a 0.040-inch tube-like frame with a NiTi open coil spring. Seating the E-arch compresses the open coil spring and activates expansion. Therefore, the E-arch is ideal where patient compliance or parent cooperation is a concern. The E- arch is typically banded to the first permanent molars; however, if these teeth have not fully erupted, bands can be placed on the second deciduous molars. In these situations, the clinician may consider placing lingual extension arms to prevent the second deciduous molars from expanding further than the first permanent molars.

  • Fixed Fan Expander for CleftFixed Fan Expander for Cleft

    Fan RPE (Rapid Palatal Expander)

    The fan expander (fan RPE) allows for rapid expansion of the palate widening the arch of the anterior section while still maintaining the expansion at the molar level. This appliance self-
    deactivates when maximum expansion has been achieved preventing over-treatment. The Fan RPE is commonly used for patients with cleft palates and comes in 7 and 11 mm. With each expansion appliance, we provide a custom swivel key that has an integrated activation recording tool directly on the handle.

  • Haas Expanderhaas expander

    HAAS Expander

    The HAAS appliance incorporates an acrylic plate within the vault of the palate with an expansion screw. Lingual arms are laser welded to the bands integrated into the acrylic. Dr. Haas believed that more palatal coverage reduced tipping and supplied more bodily movement because of the additional coverage on the palate. With each expansion appliance, we provide a custom swivel key that has an integrated activation recording tool directly on the handle.

  • Hanks Class II Correcting HerbstHanks Class II Correcting Herbst

    Hanks Herbst

    The Hanks Herbst appliance provides an exceptional function in class II orthodontic correction. This appliance repositions the mandible forward to allow for the adaptation of the muscular, skeletal and dental components utilizing a simple to install the telescopic component on the buccal. The Hanks is easy and efficient because screws are integrated directly into the telescoping mechanism reducing the chance for small pieces falling into the patients’ mouth. Its unique ball and socket design provide unrestricted lateral excursion and unparalleled patient comfort. We recommend the Herbst for those difficult patients who have compliance issues with removable appliances.
