Abstract

The aim of the study was to develop and implement in practical application of the existing clamshell removable functional orthodontic activator (ECRFOA) to achieve the simultaneous treatment of distal occlusion, tone control chewing and facial muscles, such as the restoration of nasal breathing. It was found that the use of the ECRFOA at the age of 9-12 years with distal occlusion and various types of breathing leads to low and uneven recovery electromyographic parameters studied muscle in 3 months after initiation of treatment: children with distal occlusion and physiological type of breathing the overall improvement of the studied parameters values it varies between 4,0-9,8±3,48%, and in children with distal occlusion and pathological type of breathing - in the range 5,3- 31,2±3,14%.
