The NEOsmile™ is a preformed tooth positioner that will idealize the patient's finishing occlusion upon debanding. The NEOsmile™ will maintain a Class I ideal relationship and provide some buffering against TMJ related irritations. Each NEOsmile™ incorporates molded airholes for unencumbered breathing. Like a custom tooth positioner, the NEOsmile™ is seated on the upper arch posterior on one side and stretched to the opposite side. Then the patient can gently clench to fully occlude into the appliance.
TYPICAL INDICATED APPLICATIONS
Moderate space closure, band spaces, minor to moderate diastema closure, 3-4° torque, 5-8° rotation, and minor to moderate uprighting can be achieved where space is available.Generalized spacing may be corrected by staging sizes of the NEOsmile™. When generalized spacing is present and NEOsmile™ is fitted to the patient, it is typically recommended to use a size smaller than the patient's measured size. Patients with moderate generalized spacing may require the use of two concurrent NEOsmile™ positioners in incrementally smaller sizes to achieve ideal results.
SELECTING THE PROPER SIZE
Determine the patient size for the NEOsmile™ by measuring the millimeter span from distal of upper cuspid to distal of opposite cuspid along the incisal edges.
