Traditional RPE with Custom Direct Printed Bands
Still the most popular expansion appliance fabricated. This sturdy appliance can be fabricated with screws capable of from eight to include mm of lateral development.
Slimline with Custom Direct Printed Bands
The Slimline palatal screw is used in cases requiring a physically smaller expansion screw for cases needing upper arch development. The screw allows for approximately 12mm of activation and more patient tongue space providing optimal patient comfort.
Transpalatal Arch with Custom Direct Printed Bands
Custom direct printed bands can be utilized in almost all situations where traditional bands or orthodontic crowns would normally be utilized. They can be used on both simplistic cases such as TP or LH and on complex cases including Mara, Herbst®, or CS Springs.
Hanks Telescoping Herbst with Custom Direct Printed Bands
The HTH was developed by Dr. Stephen Hanks as a major improvement to the traditional rod and tube design and is the only true “one piece” design available for Herbst® treatment. The telescoping design eliminates problems of disengagement and incorporates a ball and socket pivotal screw that is built into the telescoping mechanism. The ball and socket allows for tremendous lateral excursion and increased patient comfort. Also, the built in screw makes chair side placement extremely easy.
Follow Standard Band/Crown Appliance Bonding set up. The properties of this metal (316L) are similar to current bands/crowns therefore the bonding method would be the same. Many different Glass ionomer or light-cured adhesives will work for bonding, however, we recommend using Reliance Ultra Band-Lok Light Cure Adhesive (DynaFlex® Item #18-UBBPP).
Step 1: Ensure appliance fits patient properly prior too bonding.
Step 2: It is recommended to acid etch the enamel of each tooth that will have bonding adhesive.
Step 3: Isolate and prep teeth in normal procedure.
Step 4: Use of bonding booster is recommended but is optional.
Step 5: Small ring of adhesive is placed around the occlusal surface of the crown/band and other surfaces touching teeth per design of appliance.
Step 6: Seat appliance. Use cotton roll or other seating accessory to fully seat appliance if necessary.
Step 7: Clean up flash.
Step 8: Light cure as needed per adhesive instructions.
Debond is similar to traditional band/crown debonding technique.
Step 1: Use band/crown removal instrument (DynaFlex® Item #M-D444). Option: Slit the buccal side of crown with a bur for easy removal.
Step 2: Remove remaining adhesive and properly clean all tooth surfaces where bonding occurred.
