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
