Distalizing Appliances:

 

Sagittal

Crowding may be alleviated by the use of sagittal appliances.  Sagittal appliances move the anterior teeth forward or distalize the molars.  Adams clasps are on the first bicuspids and first molars.  Maxillary sagittals position twin expansion screws at the mesial of the first molar, the appliance is cut into 3 sections to allow for expansion.  The mandibular appliance positions the screws in the cuspid/bicuspid area.  A third midline screw may be added if transverse expansion is desired.  Springs may also be incorporated to move the canines into position as space becomes available.  Also acrylic coverage on the posterior teeth may be incorporated to relieve maxillary / mandibular occlusal contact during treatment.
