A.L.F. - Appliances Advanced LightWire Functional

A.L.F.Innovation is the way of the marketplace and the ALF/Lightwire appliances represent a major innovation in TMJ and Orthodontic therapy. ALF/Lightwire appliances are custom designed and capable of correcting, not only the various types of malocclusion, but also cranial base and cranial distortions present in the chronic pain, TMD type patient.

With the A.L.F. appliance and a little knowledge of cranial concepts, dentists now have the capability of aligning the maxillae (cranial base) and correcting cranial distortions. Designing appliances just to correct teeth, when cranial base and other distortions exist, is really treating the symptom rather than the underlying cause! The A.L.F. appliance is based on the Arndt-Shulz Law: "Weak stimuli increase physiological activity and very strong stimuli inhibit or abolish activity. The A.L.F. appliance virtually eliminates the need for multiple appliances, it can be modified during later stages of treatment to meet specific needs. Such examples are: and others.

Advantages

The upper and lower OMNI appliances are easily modified to accommodate a lip bumper, occlusal pads, class II or II elastics, and to correct cross bites.
 

OMNI II Appliances

The Omni II was the first designed to correct severe class II open bites. An amazing design that is more effective than most other appliances for amndibular repositioning. The design allows maximum tongue space due to the repositioning rakes on the buccal of the appliance.

This appliance allows for minimal lateral motion and unlimited opening and protrusive motions. by changing the rake angle, the OMNI II is one fo the most effective sleep apnea devices available. The OMNI II version of the snoring appliance is called the NOR-Snore.
 

N-Sagital Appliances
