Planas Direct Tracks in young patients WITH CLASS II MALOCCLUSION

Marcos Nadler Gribel, DDS1 / Bruno Frazão Gribel, DDS2

Pages: 355–368
PMID: 16379207

In Brazil, Class II malocclusions affect approximately one-third of children in the primary dentition period, and approximately two-thirds of the adolescent population. According to many authors, this type of malocclusion worsens with time, due to facial growth during childhood, both in terms of quantity and quality, and the facial pattern is established at an early age. The application of the Planas Direct Tracks concept and technique may represent an interesting tool for the correction and prevention of Class II malocclusion in an early treatment approach, working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, applying oral functions and muscle activity to correct the malocclusion.
