Munchies® EPS (Enhanced Posterior Seating)
The latest superb iteration of the acclaimed Munchies range, have now been designed to optimize the seating of aligners in the premolar region in particular, where expansion is often programmed. This device utilizes the same principle as the original Munchies but also focuses on the posterior teeth, whereby optimization of seating and fit ensures that pre-programmed forces built in to the aligners are delivered accurately.
Minimize Tipping and Open Posterior Bites
Munchies® EPS have also been designed to minimize unwanted tipping movements during arch expansion, especially in the premolar region. These tipping movements occur due to the expansion forces programmed into the aligners being applied inaccurately. Poorly fitting aligners in the premolar region will deliver forces which are too coronal and produce a greater propensity to unwanted tipping and onerous open posterior bites.
The Munchies® EPS 3-ridged-arm has been designed to adapt to the anatomy of all premolars and extended palatally and lingually to ensure expansion forces from the aligners are delivered as gingivally as possible to avoid tipping and open posterior bites.
Medical Grade Silicone Even Stronger
Munchies® EPS are engineered using a new patented medical grade silicone material (MVT - Munchie Viscoelastic Technology) with improved tear strength and superior mechanical properties. Patients using the EPS Munchies all report an instantaneous improvement in the fit of their aligners.
Munchies® EPS are offered in Pink and Blue colours. The Pink option has a hardness in between the standard Yellow and Orange Munchie, whilst the Blue option has a similar hardness to the standard Red Munchie. A pack of 6 (which includes 3 Pink and 3 Blue Munchies EPS and 2 carrying cases) is ideal for each patient, with a busy practice having the option of buying in bulk packs.
Indications For Use
Standard Munchies can be used in simple cases with minimal posterior movements and limited expansion.
Munchies EPS are ideally prescribed for treatment plans:
