Trainer for Alignment Phase 1 - T4A Phase 1

Initial appliance for habit correction

The Trainer for Alignment (T4A®) Phase 1 is a soft appliance with the flexibility to adapt to misaligned anterior teeth. When used, light forces are applied to the anterior teeth to assist their alignment into the correct arch form. The T4A® Phase 1 can also be used simultaneously with specific arch development appliances. Extra spacing in the palatal area means it can be used with the Farrell Bent Wire System™ (BWS) and MRC's Myolay™ arch development systems.

T4A Phase 1 Design Features

The design features of the T4A® Phase 1 are ideally suited for initial correction of any malocclusion (except Class III) in the early permanent dentition, while also helping to correct breathing and soft tissue dysfunctions.

Directions for Use

The Trainer appliance is to be used for one to two hours each day, plus overnight while sleeping. The patient's teeth may become slightly sensitive in the early stages of treatment. This is quite normal, however, if pain becomes excessive, decrease application time with the aim to build it back up once the appliance is accustomed to and sensitivity subsides.
