The Occlusal Plane Reference – for accurate dental modifications
Changes in the plane of occlusion lead to an alteration in function, comfort and esthetics and need to be done in a highly precise way. The Occlusal Plane Reference (OPR) allows changing the occlusion in exact single mm and degree steps in all possible directions, a total novum in orthodontics. By turning the different screws of the Multidirectional Adaptation Appliance, the acrylic plate can be rotated and turned in precise small steps in order to modify or maintain the occlusal plane in regards of height, rotation, and transversal inclination. Furthermore, it allows fixing the lingual or vestibular arch wire in a precise, safe, and repeatable way for indirect bonding procedures.
