Abstract

Introduction: In the modern era, where the treatment mechanics are being refined to suit the requirements of the patient and ease of application by the clinician, there is an increasing demand for versatility in the appliance being used. Complexity doesn’t contribute to better patient compliance or help the clinician in carrying out the mechanics with ease. Patients are demanding minimal invasive treatment to correct the malocclusions. There is need for innovations in appliance design to customise it according to the patient needs..

Description: Minor tooth corrections can be brought about by removable appliances and has a better compliance factor with the patient. The complexity of the appliance and the treatment duration might hinder the patient from approaching a clinician for correction of minor problems relating the dentition. In the present article, a new appliance is made to overcome the problems with the present systems in dealing with minor tooth corrections and it can be modified according to the requirements of the corrections intended to achieve..

Results: The objective of the treatment could be achieved with the use of the appliance and patient was fully satisfied with the treatment results.
