The Tandem appliance is designed for Class III patients with skeletal midfacial deficiencies. The problem with previous methods has been one of compliance, due to both the physical appearance of the extra-oral appliance and skin irritation from the face mask pads. The Tandem functions similarly to traditional face mask therapy with the exception of a more comfortable fit and wear for the patient. This comfortable intra-oral fit translates into higher acceptance and keeps treatment times on track for the clinician. We also offer a fixed version to address noncompliant concerns.
Other Class III correction appliances from Johns Dental include: the CD Remodeler, the Anterior Drive Hyrax, the Evans Sagittal, the Twin Block, the Frankel and the Han. Call our free ortho technical phone support staff with questions about your case.
