The Occlus-o-Guide® : 8 to 12-Year-Old Patients Treated in Four to Ten Months

The Occlus-o-Guide® treatment offers the 8 to 12 year old patients an orthodontic appliance to straighten crowding, spacing, overbite, overjet, and guide erupting posterior teeth into a perfect Class I relationship. Plus, it is designed to correct jaw discrepancies, molar relations and rotations. Active treatment consists of two to four hours per day plus nighttime wear for a period of four to ten months.

Results include approximately 1mm of correction per month; more at the beginning of treatment, less at the end. Active wear/exercise consists of biting down into the appliance and holding for one minute, then release for 30 seconds. Exercising consists of a minimum of 20-minute increments throughout the day totaling a total of two to four hours. The “G” series is available in 13 sizes. Use these simple measuring instructions to determine which size best fits your patient.
