Together with the tomas® system, amda® offers a safe System for the distalization of upper molars. As a skeletal anchorage device it can be used both for the bi- or unilateral distalization or the mesialization of upper molars and for the retraction of the upper anterior teeth depending on how it is fitted. The appliance serves as a skeletally anchored transpalatal arch during the retention phase. amda® is more than merely a distalization appliance.
The amda® system was invented by Prof. Dr. med. dent. Moschos A. Papadopoulos and developed by Dentaurum in close cooperation with him. Dr. med. dent. Moschos A. Papadopoulos is a Professor and Chairman of the Department of Orthodontics of the School of Dentistry, Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece.
