Premand Spring Retainer

This application opens the mandible to correct tongue posture and anterior minor rotations, crowding, or relapse. The retainer is comprised of a curved helical spring with acrylic pads on both the labial and lingual and a choice of clasp. When worn by the patient, the resulting labial-lingual force will align the teeth.

Treatment & Care

Four-week appointment intervals are recommended. At each appointment, appliance fit should be evaluated, and orthodontic correction monitored. Interproximal reduction, as well as appliance adjustment, may be necessary. Patients should wear 22 hours a day and clean daily with toothpaste to prevent the buildup of plaque and odor. Avoid Efferdent and other effervescent solutions, as it may erode components on the appliance.
