The use of a simple functional appliance as an adjunct to fixed appliance orthodontic treatment Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Three clinical case studies are presented to demonstrate the use of a simple functional appliance in orthodontic situations not covered by traditionally-accepted dental and skeletal indications. In each case, the appliance was used to reduce the severity of the malocclusion, before a routine fixed-appliance detailing phase.
