Orthodontic Devices & Types Of Appliances

Orthodontic Appliances We Use At Stryker Orthodontics


Rapid Palatal Expanders

Attached to the upper molars through bonding or by cemented bands, the Rapid Palatal Expander is an orthodontic device used to create a wider space in the upper jaw. It is typically used when the upper jaw is too narrow for the lower jaw. In addition, Rapid Palatal Expanders are used when the upper teeth are crowded or blocked out of the dental arch.

When patients are still growing, their connective tissue between the left and right halves of their upper jaw is very responsive to expansion. By simply activating the expander through turning a screw in the center, with a special key we provide, gradual outward pressure is placed on the left and right halves of the upper jaw. This pressure causes an increased amount of bone to grow between the right and left halves of the jaw. As a result, the width increases.

Forsus & Herbst Orthodontic Appliances

One of the most common problems orthodontists treat is the discrepancy that occurs when the upper teeth protrude beyond the lower. Ordinarily, when we see a patient with the upper teeth protruding, we tend to think that the upper jaw and teeth are too far forward. But, more often than not, this condition is due to a small lower jaw that is further back than it should be. With these patients, we would like to encourage the lower jaw to catch up in growth. In addition, we recommend an orthodontic appliance like the Herbst appliance to help this happen.

Even though Herbst orthodontic appliances prevent the lower jaw from moving backward, opening and closing movement still occur easily. Furthermore, patients do not have any problems learning to chew their food with their lower jaw in this new position.

Space Maintainers

Space maintainer keeps the vacated space open until the permanent tooth is ready to come in. Not every tooth that is lost too early requires a space maintainer. If one of the four upper front teeth is lost early, the space will stay open on its own. It will stay open until the permanent tooth comes in.

A space maintainer is made of stainless steel and/or plastic. While some space maintainers are removable, some are fixed and cemented into the patient’s mouth.

Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs)

Temporary Anchorage Devices, or TADs, are small titanium anchors used in certain orthodontic cases to help achieve tooth movements that in some cases would be otherwise impossible, such as moving molar teeth back into the bone (intrusion).

Elastics

Elastics are worn to correct the bite or (fit) of the teeth. Lack of elastics wear is one of the biggest reasons orthodontic treatment does not finish on time. The following videos will show you how to hook up your elastics if you are having problems.
