Extra-oral appliances are used in orthodontics to apply forces to the jaws, dentition or both. Extra-oral forces used in orthodontic treatment require the use of headgear. We have a variety of extraoral products such as face bow, head gear, chin cap, face mask. A face bow is defined as a caliper like instrument used to record the spatial relationship of the maxillary arch to some anatomic reference point or points and then transfer this relationship to an articulator. Its purpose is to transfer functional and aesthetic components from patient's mouth to the dental articulator. Specifically, it transfers the relationship of maxillary arch and temporomandibular joint to the casts. It aids in mounting maxillary cast on the articulator.
Headgear is a type of orthodontic appliance attached to the patient's head with a neck strap or a number of straps around the patients head. The device typically transfers the force to the teeth via a facebow or J hooks to the patients dental braces or a palatal expander that aids in correcting more severe bite problems or is used in retention of the teeth and jaws of the patient.
