PowerScope™ 2 Class II Corrector
PowerScope 2 brings you simple, efficient, Class II correction like you've never seen before. This latest generation features a stronger wire attachment nut and visual activation indicators. It addresses critical needs of the orthodontist, including patient comfort and acceptance, extensive range of motion, simple installation and much more.* PowerScope 2 goes from package to treatment in just seconds, and unlike other Class II correctors, there's no need for assembly, measuring, or appliance manipulation. This wire-to-wire device delivers unmatched patient comfort, eliminates the need for headgear tubes or special band assemblies, and can be used with either banded or bonded molar tubes.
PowerScope 2 has the ability to treat the following types of cases:
- Class II correction with dentoalveolar compensation of occlusion (Class II elastics effect)
- Class II division 1 malocclusions
- Class II division 2 malocclusions
- Unilateral correction of Class II
- Asymmetric cases - midline correction
- Distalizing upper posterior teeth (headgear substitute)
- Mini-screw alternative - anchorage for mandibular arch space closure (aplasia)
- Aid with opening space for future implants
- Anterior maxilla
- Posterior mandible
Magnetic sleeve slides onto driver for secure hold of appliance during installation.
PowerScope's low profile means a more aesthetic appearance, and its smooth, rounded design provides better patient comfort. There's no piston extending distally from the upper molars, which helps reduce ulceration.
