"Ethno“ orthodontics, almost painless and no troubles

Dear parents, if orthodontic treatment of your child is advisable, how to avoid problems with eating, with brushing / flossing, or the menace of pain which lasts for days? We hadn´t these problems in Germany until 20 years ago, and in German Democratic Republic even until re-unification. Due to Ger...

Allowing for healthy growth

@akr I prefer fixed appliances ... more simple and easy to use, doesn't affect speach, and the patient can eat with the appliance. The child has no other choice than to eat with the appliance, I would express it. And keeping the teeth clean is much less simple that with a removable. The mentioned ap...

Dear Taf, dear readers, I dread that your daughter will suffer soon – unless she is very pain-insensitive. A few children may find headgears funny, but a fixed palate expander is never funny! she has had spacers put in, but only on her bottom teeth. Next week ... she gets a palate expander ... wit...

Forced methods for tender children?

Dear Admin, o.k., the spring expander is not the one that disrupts the palatal suture, and therefore less painful and risky, but why must it be fixed? I don´t suppose that your daughter is never obeying... Eating small things is hard with this, because they get stuck almost completely in there. Suc...

whether adequate space can be made in the lower arch. If that is possible then headgears, or Wilson distalizing appliances or pendulums can be used. Appropriate (!) removable plate or Crozat appliances (plate is easier), as in the examples in my second but previous posting herein, are also proven t...

A few of these TONS of appliances

There are TONS of different appliances to advance the mandible. Just if you wish to see a few of them, and find a few keywords for a search near your home, see in my www below in Gerätegalerie B. For example activators or bionators (the difference between them is mainly the shape of wires) can eit...

Pendulum, distaljet: CAUTION

I am glad to see that we are approaching. drrick, thanks for your general considerations. Many docs find crozats hard to work with. SOme others really like them. Schwarz-type plate appliances are easier to make and to handle, and can be cheaper than old Crozat. Further, when the patient is screwing ...

Apart from the mainstream: alternative

now I´m even more confused !!! Lean back, breathe deeply and read the following. Then you can start searching for doctors apart from the „mainstream“. Headgear seems a great alternative to pulling out 4 health new teeth, and all the doctors I´ve had contact with say it`s a very effective meth...

A third and perhaps better option?

Dear readers, even if my comments are not welcome to everyone here, I have again something to add and to show. It cannot be healthy to pull the upper molars with high force painfully through the bone. the other option was to extract 4 permenant teeth - but thanks to the great advice from.. I advise ...

Truth is you don't have to break the palatal bone of a child of that age because it's not fused yet, but gives in to expansion without having to break anything. Let´s do not discuss about the choice of the word - in scientific literature, it is „splitting of the palatal suture“. But it is not ...

Cruelty against children

I find it cruel to break the palatal bone of a just 8- 9-year old child by a fixed expander. In my opinion, this is a method for adults and older teenagers. Because for such young children, removable plate appliances can gain the required width and space well, also avoiding extractions, and they can...
