This popular fixed functional appliance consists of an incisal ramp located lingual to the maxillary anteriors, connected to the maxillary first molar bands via two .050 connector wires.
Patients compliance is excellent and this appliance is ideal for mandibular advancement when the overjet is less than 4 mm. Deep overbite correction is made easier with the Rick-A-Nator and vertical elastics.
It dramatically improves the patient's profile and health of the TMJ.
When worn in combination with a straight wire appliance, treatment time is significantly shortened.
