SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KILBON, so-called next-generation orthodontics has recently become the hottest issue as it is very innovative to correct severe dentoalveolar protrusion and hyperdivergent face at the same time, which are very demanding and difficult to treat only with regular orthodontics, without surgical methods.
It has been known that treating severe dentoalveolar protrusion and hyperdivergent face at the same time with the general method is extremely challenging. Correcting these conditions needs to relocate a considerable number of teeth, and the existing orthodontic appliances with limited structures often cause the jiggling effect-unnecessary tooth movement. In other words, the orthodontic correction of the dentoalveolar protrusion with hyperdivergent face is not so easy because of the high risk to the tooth root. Until now, those who are concerned about their protruded lips often caused by severe dentoalveolar protrusion have been recommended to have surgeries such as two jaw surgery, and those surgeries- often conducted under general anesthesia -are not easily applicable for every person due to the high risk.
By contrast, KILBON allows to correct the severe dentoalveolar protrusion without surgical methods. KILBON is individually customized for each patient, is designed to minimize jiggling effect, and reduces the tooth root damage; yet, it is possible to move teeth further than regular orthodontics. Furthermore, KILBON is also effective for other problems such as gummy smile and retruded chin.
KILBON took the center stage in the world and drew the interests of orthodontic specialists around the world by proving its effect on treating the patients with hyperdivergent face and the dentoalveolar bone protrusion on Head & Face Medicine June and publishing the thesis about the result of KILBON orthodontics on KJO.
“KILBON appliance is so effective that it does something that orthodontist has been trying to do for years.”-said professor Gerald Nelson who served as a clinical director of the orthodontic department at UCSF School of Dentistry and a clinical editor for AJODO.
KILBON-invented by CENTRAL orthodontic clinic in South Korea-has been introduced to many nations including the U.S. and China with high praise, and the Central orthodontic clinic contributes to the innovative technologies in cooperation with the orthodontic departments at Saint Louis University and at UCSF School of Dentistry.
