LM-Activator™ as a part of effective orthodontic workflow in Finland

I definitely recommend early treatment whenever possible. The earlier treatment can start, the better severe malocclusion can be prevented. I’m very satisfied in the way we allocate work, which makes my own work easier. We have a great team!

I have obtained good clinical treatment results with LM-Activator ™over a period of 15 years. Issues with crowding, increased horizontal overbite and traumatic deep bite with palatal impingement have been successfully corrected, and even if we have not been able to fully eliminate or correct the patient’s malocclusion, the appliance has managed to prevent it from getting worse.

LM-Activator™ is comfortable and easy to use for both the patient and the dental hygienist. Selecting a suitable appliance size and fitting it to the patient are simple procedures. If needed, the appliance can be easily adjusted to relieve any pressure, for example. There is no need for a large assortment of complicated orthodontic equipment in the treatment room. Teaching patients how to use the appliance is easily done.
