Title:
Development of a new device for maxillary molar distalization with high pseudoelastic forces to overcome slider friction: the Longslider-a modification of the Beneslider. 
Abstract:
Skeletally anchored devices have been developed to distalize maxillary molars in class II malocclusion. NiTi springs with high pseudoelastic forces are required to overcome friction and concomitantly create ideal translation force for molar distalization. We present a new maxillary molar distalization device (the Longslider) generating forces of up to gf 600 (5.88 N).Six patients with class II malocclusion owing to maxillary excess were treated by molar distalization. The required distalization...    »
