Key Features

  • Describes fixed functional appliances, which act in both arches to advance the mandible.
  • Describes distalization appliances, which act only in the maxillary arch to move molars distally, including: Pendulum, Distal Jet, Keles Slider, magnets and superelastic coils.
  • Reviews the possibilities of using implants for absolute anchorage.
  • Provides analysis of the evidence-based efficiency of appliances.
  • Written by an international group of contributors from the USA, Canada, Europe, Hong Kong, Brazil and Australia.
