Is done with the help of so-called removable and / or fixed appliances on or on the teeth.
These devices behave either as an “active” device with respect to the teeth, ie they emit a force set by the dentist that influences the correspondingly incorrectly positioned teeth or jaws. Treatment devices that build up this active force development are available both in a variant that can be removed for the patient (eg so-called active plates, Crozat devices, etc.) or as a fixed variant that can not be independently removed by the patient (eg the multibracketts or multiband, Etc.).
When it comes to regulating tooth misalignments, only removable orthodontic appliances are used in practice. Mostly I work with the so-called BIONATOR after Prof. Balters.
The human skull does not consist of a single but a total of 27 bone parts. These are interconnected by tiny oppositely moving crevices and allow, among other things, the skull bone in normal delivery (i.e., without cesarean section) to pass through the narrow birth canal of the female pelvis.
The cranial bones “breathe,” i. they move rhythmically, as well as breathing or heartbeat, but with an individually different frequency of about 5-14 times a minute. This rhythmic movement results from a contraction and expansion of the four large cerebral fluid chambers.
The fixed orthodontic appliances (MULTIBAND or MULTI-BRACKETT) on the teeth, especially in the upper jaw, cause a blockage of the cranial bone parts and thus »cranial respiration«.
Other so-called functional devices such as the BIONATOR or similar BIONATOR related devices can be removed from the patient.
The BIONATOR in the mouth in the model example:
With this removable device, the individual dynamic power of the oral systems is used to regulate the position of the teeth, and no mechanical forces are generated from the device to the teeth, such as with fixed devices that can block “skull breathing”.
