advanced molar distalization appliance.
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 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
The amda® system was designed by Prof. Dr. med. dent.
Moschos A. Papadopoulos. Dentaurum developed the system
in close cooperation with him. Dr. Papadopoulos is a Professor
and Chairman of the Department of Orthodontics at the School
of Dentistry, Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece.
