The protraction face mask for small faces.
Designed by Dr. Fernando Morales at the request of pediatric dentists and orthodontists to be used especially at early ages, facilitating its adjustment thanks to the new anatomical design that allows an easy adaptation on the face of the patient without cutting the mainframe.
It is an orthopedic device used to perform maxillary protraction, being an auxiliary for the treatment of Class III patients from 4 to 8 years who have maxillary hypoplasia in primary and early mixed dentition.
The cotton padding improves its function by providing greater comfort to the patient and facilitates their cooperation. Due to its overextended design, it decreases the pressure areas of the chin on the soft tissues and reduces possible periodontal problems caused by excessive pressure in a defined area, as well as irritation due to sweating.
The stops system allows the following function:
Dynamic face mask. When using a dynamic face mask, opening and closing movements are allowed offering greater comfort to the patient. It can be used during the day and night.
Fixed face mask. When the stops immobilize the chin cup, opening and closing movements are not allowed, maintaining the elastics on the same direction of traction. It is usually used at night.
It is for the individual use of the patient and must be used under the responsibility and supervision of the specialist dentist. The patient should use it at home and in activities that do not involve risk..
