Evaluation and analysis of characteristics

Evaluating the dentoalveolar, skeletal and functional characteristics is an essential part of selecting patients for LM-Activator™ treatment. A thorough case-by case analysis of the patient’s malocclusion and its severity is needed.  The indications table will guide you in the case selection.

Based on this analysis it is easy to select the model of LM-Activator™. Use LM-OrthoSizer™ to get an indication of the size and fit the appliance to the patient to ensure a good fit. 

It is important to analyze the motivation of the patient and the parents as patient compliance is essential for successful treatment. The dental professionals have a decisive role not only in instructing and guiding but also in motivating the patients and the parents in the use.   

What can be treated?

LM-Activator™ is suitable for treating typical malocclusions: excess Overbite or Deep bite, excess Overjet, Open bite, Crowding, anterior Crossbite, and Class II or Class II tendency.

How to treat with

Selecting the right size is just as important as choosing the model. The size is the base for a correct fit of the application in the mouth.

Support materials for child patients and parents

Patient compliance is essential for successful treatment. The first month is crucial in adopting the habit to
use the appliance. The dental professionals at the clinic have an important role in instructing and motivating the patient and the family in the use. It is important to make sure the parents understand that irregular use may be equivalent with no treatment at all.

We offer motivational support material for the both the patient and the parents.  

Parental guidance and support are always essential when treating young patients with removable appliances, particularly at the beginning of the treatment.
