Epigenetic Orthodontics Case Study: Part 2

This appliance check we removed my lower fixed retainer and seated the lower Fixed-Removable Lingual Arch (FRLA) appliance. It has a specific amount of prescribed expansion and torque built into it that will help widen my lower jaw arch. We adjusted my molar pads since I was no longer contacting on my 2nd molars, which indicates that the pitch of my lower jaw is changing (we want this!). We measured that I had 1 mm of growth on my left side and 2 mm of growth on my right side. For me adjusting to the FRLA appliance was easy compared to the Fixed Growth Guidance Appliance. My molars that the bands are on were sore for the first few days, but since then it has been fine.
