CV100 biteplate cushion loop facebow   “The Shock Absorber Cervera style” facebow

The biteplate facebow is a unique appliance. It is also known as a Cervera style bite plate facebow. The biteplate facebow has been recommended for use in the correction of Class II malocclusion with deep overbites. It is used in Class II Division I cases to simultaneously intrude upper and lower anterior teeth, retract upper anterior teeth, and move posterior teeth distally. It is often used in mixed dentition cases. The biteplate facebow is similar in design to the conventional cervical facebow with the addition of an inner bow metal plate. The plate presses against the maxillary incisors and prevents the patient from fully closing, thus acting as a biteplate. The optional retraction elastic is controlled by an optional wire hinge to eliminate tissue impingement.

The cushion loop facebow, invented and patented in 1963 by Dr Lawrence F. Andrews, solved the outer bow breakage problem of many facebows with the shock-absorbing loop.  It has stood the test of time as the finest commercially available since 1963. Ortho Kinetics has been manufacturing the cushion loop facebows since 1996 in our USA manufacturing facility.
