The MARA (Mandibular Anterior Repositioning Appliance) is a simple and durable Class II corrector. The appliance is attached to the patient's first molars with stainless steel crowns.
The lower “arms” are permanently attached. The upper “elbows” are removable, allowing the clinician to make adjustments. Patients generally adapt to the MARA in a few days and sore spots are minimal.
The MARA is small in size, making it one of the more aesthetic Class II appliances on the market, and provides access to placing brackets first bicuspid to first bicuspid.
