The Dynamax system: a new orthopaedic appliance and case report

The Dynamax system: a new orthopaedic appliance and case report

Journal of Orthodontics 33(2): 78-89

The Dynamax appliance is a treatment modality for the correction of the Skeletal II malocclusion characterized by a mandibular retrusion. Progressive mandibular advancement, maxillary expansion, control of maxillary growth, incisor torque and control of vertical facial development are incorporated into a two-part appliance. The design facilitates laboratory construction, clinical handling and patient acceptability. A prefabricated spring module forms the basis of the appliance, allowing both maxillary expansion and mandibular advancement. An easily adjustable progressive forward position of the lower jaw makes a construction bite unnecessary. The spring module provides most of the structure of the appliance so that minimal acrylic is required and the appliance is fully contained within the freeway space. Contact between the upper and lower parts of the appliance occurs posteriorly in the lingual sulcus. Here the depth permits an extended vertical contact, to maintain a protrusive mandibular position throughout the range of mandibular opening, including during sleep. The lower portion of the appliance may be fixed or removable and multibracket treatment can be carried out in one or both arches at the same time as the orthopaedics.
