The Frankel apparatus is a functional orthodontic device that is used in early treatment. The Fränkel device is not located in the palate area like other removable appliances, but is located between the row of teeth and the inside of the cheek. The apparatus specifically exerts tension on the muscles in the cheek and lip area, thus stimulating the bone areas at the base to grow. The Frankel appartment is very delicate, so the pronunciation is hardly restricted. After a short period of familiarization, the equipment is barely recognizable.
The Frankel apparatus is particularly suitable for early treatment, from the age of 4.
