The Distal Jet Appliance is a non-removable lingual appliance that is used to move upper teeth backward faster and more predictably than headgear. The Distal Jet distalizes molars and corrects teeth that have rotated. This appliance corrects class II problems.
1. Remove separators and clear any debris from the interproximal areas. Seat the appliance completely, checking the fit before cementation. Check the passive fit of directors and bayonets – adjust as necessary. 2. Mix cement, load bands and cement the appliance as a single unit, in a customary manner. 3. After cement clean-up, remove stabilizing floss or wire before activation. 4. The appliance is activated initially after cementation and at four-week intervals by complete compression of coil spring with the activation lock (see special note below).
