Orthodontics: functional orthodontic therapy from deciduous to permanent teeth

Elastodontics is an innovative and integrative minimally invasive orthodontic therapy that represents a true evolution in orthodontics. It allows orthodontic treatments from the age of two and a half years up to adult age and, therefore, an important aspect of achieving excellent results is the compliance of all patients; which is why the application of the Cardarelli Protocol is of great importance.

Modern orthodontic treatments must pursue an ideal and harmonious alignment of the teeth guided by jaw growth to achieve not only an excellent esthetic result but occlusal and functional stability. Elastodontics is an orthodontic therapy that uses light, biological elastic-type forces to correct malocclusions in growth patients and adults, influencing growth, eliminating functional disorders, and correcting the position and occlusal relationships of the teeth.

Elastodontic Therapy plays a major role in the context of modern dentistry. Preventive and interceptive orthodontics involve treatments undertaken at an early age, during the most active stages of skeletal and dental growth, when skeletal structures are characterized by remarkable plasticity and adaptability, treatments aimed at removing factors believed to be responsible for dental malocclusions.

Sucking, chewing, and swallowing are strongly influenced by lingual posture and all other facial and mouth muscles. Harmonious development of the muscles of the orofacial district will not only allow all functions to be performed properly but also ensure the healthy growth of bones and teeth.

Introducing the AMCOP Bio-Activator: A Revolutionary Therapeutic Solution

The AMCOP Bio-Activator stands as a pioneering elastodontic device meticulously crafted from cutting-edge, thermoactivable materials. Designed with a keen focus on functional orthopedic-skeletal articulation, including the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), neuro-muscular, occlusal, and postural aspects, this device offers unparalleled therapeutic efficacy.

By seamlessly realigning the neuro-muscular system and optimizing tooth positioning in precise harmony with the craniofacial structure, the AMCOP Bio-Activator ensures a holistic approach to dental health. It fosters the ideal relationship between teeth and bone bases, thereby promoting alignment with the skull, TMJ, cervical spine, and the intricate Cranio-Sacral System, crucial for posture.

Each variant of the AMCOP Bio-Activator is meticulously engineered to facilitate proper dental eruption and the symmetrical development of dental arches, achieving optimal transverse, vertical, sagittal, and torsional occlusal relationships. This comprehensive approach effectively addresses various occlusal imbalances, enhancing overall oral health.

Furthermore, the AMCOP Bio-Activator is uniquely tailored to support the restoration of vital autonomic functions within the oral cavity, including sucking-swallowing, breathing, chewing, and phonation. Through its targeted action, this device empowers individuals to reclaim essential oral functionalities, fostering improved overall well-being.

Experience the transformative potential of the AMCOP Bio-Activator – revolutionizing Ortho-Cranio-Facial Bio-Orthopedics with unparalleled precision and efficacy.
