The Pendulum Appliance affects backward movement of the molar teeth to create space for permanent teeth to erupt naturally while also improving the bite.
The Pendulum Appliance is comprised of rings (bands) around the upper permanent first molar teeth, stainless steel occlusal rests (wires) that sit passively in the grooves of the middle teeth, composite resin that helps to anchor the appliance, an acrylic (plastic) frame that sits on the roof of the mouth, and springs that attach to the bands.
The patient may experience some minor soreness for a day or two in the areas of the molar teeth as the molars begin their movement and following an adjustment.
