Class II correction without headgear
A Class II malocclusion (overbite) is a common orthodontic problem, and occurs when the upper teeth stick out farther than the lower teeth, causing an uneven bite. In the past, Class II cases have been treated with highly visible and uncomfortable external headgear or complicated elastics. Both of these options rely on patient compliance in wearing, adjusting, and maintaining the devices.
The PowerScope Class II corrector is a low-profile fixed appliance that is attached to the upper and lower braces. It applies continuous forces to the teeth to help efficiently and effectively align your bite. Unlike headgear or elastics, PowerScope doesn’t need to be removed or adjusted, and the small, smooth appliance is barely noticeable.
