Early treatment of Class II malocclusions with the Klammt’s Elastic Open Activator (KEOA). Case report

Abstract

Summary: Treatment of malocclusions at early
ages is more frequent in modern dentistry. The maxillar functional orthopaedics provides different
therapeutic that facilitate the correction of malocclusion allowing patients to reach during child
development. The functional orthopaedic devices allow the correction of different maxillary
alterations in a fast and efficient way. This is accompanied by integral and functional attention of
the patient, to obtain the correction of the maloclussion. The Elastic Open Activator of Klammt
(AAEK) was designed by George Klammt in Germany more than 50 years ago, and it is a good election
for the early correction of the class II malocclusions supporting the treatment in right diagnosis.
Key words: Early childhood caries. Dmf. ICDAS.
