Share Abstract:

The Versatility and Effectiveness of the Multiloop Edgewise Archwire (MEAW) in Treatment of Various Malocclusions

Young H. Kim, DDS, DMD, MS, Unae K. Han, DMD, MPH, MS

Pages: 208218

Aim: Treatment of anterior open bite is considered the most difficult task in the orthodontic specialty. These malocclusions are frequently subjected to orthognathic surgery, with questionable results. Multiloop edgewise archwire therapy, however, has been found to be effective in treating open bite malocclusions. Multiloop edgewise archwire therapy has been shown to be versatile and capable of correcting other malocclusions, such as Class II, Class III, deep overbite, and malocclusions with marked midline deviations. Methods: The biomechanics of multiloop edgewise archwire therapy and pertinent research findings are discussed, and three cases are presented. Conclusion: Orthognathic surgery was recommended for two of the three cases presented, but successful treatment without surgery was achieved with multiloop edgewise archwire therapy.
