Hilgers Pendulum Appliance

The Pendulum Appliance is used to distalize the molars for the correction of Class II. Effective arch development is achieved with rests on the premolars and a .032 TMA wire embedded in acrylic. It produces a wide swinging arc of force from the midline of the palate to the upper molars producing a pendulum motion of the spring. An adjustment loop can be added to the spring to aid in rotation of the molars. Lingual sheaths are spot welded onto the band and can be provided by the lab.
