Pendulum Appliance - Clinics and Results
Abstract: Very often in orthodontics it is necessary to extract teeth to achieve optimal occlusion and alignment of the teeth. In the last years with the new contemporary appliances there is a new approach in the orthodontics non-extraction treatment of patients. The non-extraction treatment has negative sides - the duration of treatment is increased compared to the treatment with extractions. Most often the non-extraction cases are related with distalization of the upper molars. If the patient accepts the non-extraction treatment the practitioner has to be sure about the duration of the treatment and that the gained space would be sufficiently. Our survey is based on the average space gained through distalization with the usage of the Pendulum appliance and the duration of the treatment.
