It is important that dentists think about flexibility and ease in manipulation in choosing functional orthodontic appliances for the correction of malocclusions in the mixed dentition or early permanent dentition. A versatile tissue borne passive appliance, like the Frankel appliance, to correct Class II malocclusions in the course of early mixed dentition stage, can be taken into consideration.
The Frankel appliance can impact changes in sagittal, transverse and vertical jaw relationships and take away the abnormal muscle forces in the labial and buccal areas that restrict skeletal growth, thus providing an atmosphere which maximizes skeletal growth. It is anticipated to have minimal dentoalveolar remedy effect as there is only minimal tooth speak to.
