Title (EN) ORTHODONTIC DEVICE FOR TREATING MALOCCLUSIONS
(FR) DISPOSITIF ORTHODONTIQUE POUR TRAITEMENT DE MALOCCLUSIONS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An orthodontic device (10, 10', 10a, 10b) treats malocclusions using a telescopic rod (40, 40a, 40b) fixed to a molar (22) on the upper arch (14) and a molar (22) on a lower arch (12). The telescopic rod (40, 40a, 40b) lengthens and shortens during opening and closing of the jaw. The telescopic rod (40, 40a, 40b) encourages the patient to properly position their jaw causing adaptation thereby treating the malocclusions.
(FR)Dispositif orthodontique (10, 10', 10a, 10b) pour le traitement de malocclusions comprenant une tige télescopique (40, 40a, 40b) fixée à une molaire (22) de l'arc supérieur (14) et à une molaire (22) de l'arc inférieur (12). La tige téléscopique (40, 40a, 40b) s'allonge et se raccourcit au gré de l'ouverture et de la fermeture de la mâchoire. Cette tige (40, 40a, 40b) incite le patient à positionner correctement sa mâchoire en l'adaptant en vue du traitement des malocclusions.
