 LM-Activator research at Turku University

“When I saw the results of LM-Activator, I was surprised. I recommend my colleagues to try LM-Activator and see the results themselves.”
–  Professor Juha Varrela, University of Turku, Finland

The research results speak for themselves. LM-Activator is an effective method for treating malocclusions in the mixed dentition with stable results. Some of the long term research results are already published and additional results will be published when available.[Keski-Nisula 2008 A, Keski-Nisula 2008 B, Varrela, Kerosuo, Cirgic].

LM-Activator research at Tromsø University

Research shows that LM-Activator is effective in orthodontics of 7 – 8 year old children

An RCT-article from the University of Tromsø, Norway states that malocclusions may be corrected by orthodontic treatment with LM-Activator during the early mixed dentition. After one year of treatment with the silicone appliance significant improvements in Class II, overjet, overbite and crowding where achieved, according to the article published in the European Journal of Orthodontics.

Myofunctional research shows a correlation between malocclusions and orofacial dysfunctions.
