Pendex

Pendex        Pendex

The Pendex appliance is one of the most commonly used appliances of the Pendulum Appliance family. It incorporates an expansion screw, occlusal rests and TMA springs for molar distalization. Lingual sheaths are welded to molar bands to effect distalization of the molars.

 The example shown here has double legged rests on the 4s. It is often made with single legged rests on the 4s & 5s.

Lingual sheaths are available at an extra charge.

We also offer a Standard Pendulum Appliance, which is much like the Pendex, but without the expansion screw.
