MARA Appliance

MARA Appliance

The MARA (Mandibular Anterior Repositioning Appliance) to correct the bite is part of the group of fixed functional orthopaedic appliances, which moves the lower jaw forwards in the case of posterior positioning. Not only is the bite corrected and the facial profile harmonised by this. The MARA appliance has rather delicate design in comparison with other appliances of this kind, such as the Herbst appliance. The lower jaw is gradually moved forwards using individually adjustable feed rods. As the appliance is virtually invisible, it is very well-accepted by patients.

We have held regular courses about using the MARA appliance for colleagues since 2009.
