The tongue shield for mesialisation

Elements: Tongue shield 1.0 mm hard
Function: Mesialisation of the molars
Description: Through the permanent pressure of the tongue, the molars are moved mesially
  The bands once fixed in the alginate impression are slightly waxed out before the pouring. The tongue guard is bent according to the transversal width of the arch.  
  The extended arm of the tongue crib is guided straight to the molars which are to be moved mesially. There, it is fixed with the Spot Welding Unit to the bands and then soldered.  
  It is important to maintain enough distance from the tongue shield to the gingival tissue in order to allow the molar movement.
