Other appliances produce extrusive tipping forces on the maxilla and anterior teeth, which is always contraindicated for the over erupted Class II patient. Since the vector control module is made from nickel titanium, the appliance is extremely robust, while providing force values of only 3.5 ounces. Provide your patients the latest Class II correction alternative with the Jasper Vektor appliance.
