BENEFIT Palatal Anchorage
We are the exclusive New Zealand distributor of the German PSM BENEfit palatal anchorage system.
Limitations can occur when conventional TADs are used for orthodontic anchorage. Instead, the BENEfit system can be used for a variety of applications in the maxilla, mainly in the palate. Indications include molar anchorage and intrusion, molar distalisation and mesialisation, molar uprighting, anchorage for the retraction of anterior teeth and space closure, and palatal expansion.
The abutment fixation screws are internally retained, as a safety measure to avoid aspiration by the patient.
PSM runs regular courses and seminars for BENEfit users, in Europe and Australasia.
