The Tremont Cantilever Wrap Around Appliance

By: Accurate Orthotics & Podiatry  09-12-2011

The Tremont Cantilever Wrap Around Appliance is ideal for maxillary retention with a well finished occlusion that includes the second molars.

The cantilever arm provides exceptional support to the labial bow and eliminates the need for interproximal support wires.

There is excellent stability despite no active clasping. This appliance allows complete freedom for the arches to interface.

The labial bow can be pinched in at the embrasure between the first and second molars in the few instances when additional retention is needed.

 A slight squeeze with a three prong plier to the cantilever arm can adjust the labial bow up or down to accommodate any sliding tendency on the incisors.

For additional retention, acrylic can be added to the anterior section of the labial bow. Trimming acrylic away from the palatal surfaces around the necks of the posterior teeth can allow for natural settling of the occlusion without loss of retention. Both the labial bow and cantilever arm are made from .036” Duraloy wire providing long term durability for the appliance.

After rapid palatal expansion is completed, the posterior bite plane becomes the platform from which numerous treatment objectives can be achieved. Pink wax & vertically placed band material positioned within the posterior bite planes are all part of the unique debonding mechanism. Posterior bite planes vertically unload the TMJ and free up the occlusion for faster, more patient friendly treatment.
