Frog Appliance

We have successfully completed fully training in Germany for manufacturing the Frog Appliance. The appliance is used for distalising maxillary molars bodily and avoiding tipping of the teeth. Patient compliance is minimised and Headgear is not required. Easy to activate and spring is easily removed for adjustment. Can be used for first phase treatment or in combination with fixed appliances.



Designed to correct crossbites, narrow arches and crowding.
