The Quad Helix, made from .036 wire, is available as fixed or removable. Designed to expand the arch, it utilizes helices at its four corners and anterior lingual wires. Unlike pre-bent versions, ours are shaped from straight wire, ensuring tailored vault contouring without compromising wire integrity. Suitable for crossbites, mixed dentition, Class II and III cases, and cleft palate patients. Options include a tongue crib and facemask hooks.
