Design_IntraOralAppliance
Full palatal coverage with ZERO teeth contact. I believe that skeletal expansion in adults is only feasible if the force is directly applied on the maxilla.

 

Design_Headgear_Upward
Headgear component used to deliver the upwards force on the appliance.

 

Design_Headgear_Forward
Headgear component used to deliver the horizontal force. On this picture, there is 500g of forward force applied on the palate with no reciprocal on the mandible.

 

Design_Headgear_Final
Final setup of the headgear, used to deliver high forces directly to the maxilla. This version is light enough to sleep with, and can be worn for 8-hour periods comfortably.
