Rapid Molar Distalizers


RMD-Rapid Molar Distalizer


The Rapid Molar Distalizer will provide accurate and predictable molar distalization without tipping the molars. This is done by placing small expansion screws on the buccal of the arch. The screws on the buccal do not interfere with the speech or swallow pattern of the patient. The anchorage is an oversized Nance button in the anterior of the palate. The appliance is anchored to bands on the first bicuspids and first molars. The first bicuspids will follow the first molars down the alveolar process. If the patient has fully erupted second molars the appliance is anchored to the second molars and the second bicuspids. In this case the second bicuspids will follow the second molars down the alveolar process.
