1 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany American Association of Orthodontists 112th Annual Session Honolulu, Hawaii – May 4-8, 2012 Forsus-RME Combination (FRC) - a non-compliance-multifunctional-onephase device

2 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany Authors: Werner Noeke Raphael Hoehr – private office, Meschede, Germany Tim Noeke – University of Muenster, Germany Kathrin Weyer – University of Frankfurt, Germany American Association of Orthodontists 112th Annual Session Honolulu, Hawaii – May 4-8, 2012

3 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany Purpose: For an improved patients and orthodontists comfort the Forsus-Spring can be used in place of the Herbst Device in combination with the RME. Compared to the stiffness of the Herbst, the main advantage is its flexible construction and the quick incorporation.

4 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany Material: The FRC-appliance consists of RME-screw, solded lingual archwire, Forsus-Spring and vestibular sectional arch. The FRC has the advantage of less breakage, less tissue-irritation and lab/chair-time, no screws, comfortable wearing and adjustment. In comparison to the Herbst Device, only palatal and lingual solding is necessary.

5 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany Patient: Rob W., male 15 y old, overjet 7mm, Cl.II,2 Combined with RME, the Forsus Device EZ is very robust and leads to a quick result using well- defined continuous forces. Adding a full-arch multibraces system is easy e.g. needed in class II,2. Therefore all 8 bands of the FRC may remain in place

6 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany Treatment plan: - RME/lingual arch/MB upper jaw to unlock - Forsus spring - MB lower jaw - Retention Initial findings

7 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany At first the RME device and the lingual archwire were attachted

8 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany Situation after 2 weeks, the Hyrax Screw was fixed after succesful Maxillary Expansion – a Diastema is shown and the archwire is fixed

9 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany 10 weeks later the upper jaw was aligned and the upper incisors were proclinated to unlock the lower jaw. The Forsus Spring was attachted

10 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany After 4 months a Cl. I relationship at the canine has been established, so the forsus spring could be removed

11 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany While the Hyrax screw also been removed the bands of the FRC may remain in place

12 Dr. Noeke, Meschede, Germany Results/Conclusion: The Treatment time with the FRC to Cl.I correction took 7 months. The whole treatment time is about months. The FRC gives an exceptional advantage combining a non-compliance class II correction in one-phase treatment with multibraces which leads to a short treatment time. (The multibraces device will be removed within the next weeks.)
