Title
(EN) ORTHODONTIC BITE JUMPING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF ORTHODONTIQUE EN 'SAUT DE L'ARTICULE'
Abstract
(EN)
An orthodontic bite jumping device (5) includes a metal cylinder (10) for receiving a telescoping plunger (11), for attachment to and between the orthodontic braces (6, 7) fixed to a patient's upper and lower teeth to achieve desired movement in otherwise conventional fashion. The device is at each end provided with connectors (16, 22) which slidingly interact with the orthodontic braces (6, 7). A spring (24) is attached between the cylinder (10) and the plunger (11) in a manner which causes the application of relatively consistent pushing forces to the teeth. The bite jumping device is further provided with a stop mechanism (25) for preventing separation of the telescoping elements when the patient's mouth is fully opened, while otherwise ensuring free movement of the patient's jaw.
(FR)
Un dispositif orthodontique en 'saut de l'articulé' (5) comporte un cylindre métallique (10) qui reçoit un plongeur télescopique (11), et se fixe sur et entre l'appareil orthodontique (6, 7) monté sur les dents supérieures et inférieures d'un patient pour permettre leur déplacement souhaité de manière conventionnelle. Ce dispositif comporte à chaque extrémité des connecteurs (16, 22) qui coulissent sur l'appareil orthodontique (6, 7). Un ressort (24) est fixé entre le cylindre (10) et le plongeur (11) de façon à appliquer aux dents des forces de poussée relativement constantes. Ce dispositif en 'saut de l'articulé' est aussi doté d'un mécanisme d'arrêt (25) qui évite la séparation des éléments télescopiques, quand la bouche du patient est entièrement ouverte, tout en assurant la liberté de mouvement pour la mâchoire de ce patient.
