The Unitek™ MIA Mobile Intraoral Arch is a palatal lingual appliance with easy and effieicnt installation and removal for flexible control during treatment.
The Unitek MIA Mobile Intraoral Arch is a palatal and lingual appliance. Other Quad Helix lingual arches are conventionally soldered to molar bands and require cementation or rebanding each time you need to place or remove the arch. The MIA system makes the application less time consuming, offering the advantage of inserting and removing the lingual arches into sheaths pre-welded on bands. Easy removal and reinsertion allow greater flexibility and control during treatment.
MIA Mobile Intraoral Arch System
Quad Helix Lingual Arches
A quad helix consists of the force producing transverse body, the force generating arms, and the retention loops between them. The transverse body starts occlusal at the sheath and crosses over the arm lingually to allow proper gingival clearance around the neck of the molars. In addition, the body of the arch maintains its flexibility without significantly restricting the tongue.
