Activator is a loose-fitting dental appliance that aligns crowded teeth and activates mandibular growth. It is considered to have positive control over Class II corrections and the development of jaws and teeth.
Good oral health and teeth alignment is important for many reasons. It helps you keep the gums and teeth healthy and avoid future oral problems. Beyond that, it gives you that perfect bite you have been dreaming of for a long time.
Thankfully there are various ways you can straighten your teeth. One such way is – Dental Activators in Dubai & Abu Dhabi. They function by bringing the mandible forward for class II correction. They also increase the length of upper and lower dental arches to treat and prevent crowding.
Enfield Clinic offers several different dental activators of varied strengths, styles, and sizes. The orthodontist will select the most suitable option for you.

It wasn’t actually until the 1950s that the term “activators” became so popular, but as we have heard that the first activator for dental occlusions was created by Viggo Andersen in 1908.
Anderson was the first to use this device on his daughter to correct her jaw. The experiment gave excellent results — and the device was finally accepted as the first approved functional appliance in orthodontics.
Almost in the 2000s, everything changed. Many breakthroughs made dental activators significantly more effective, less damaging, and painful. The results improved and the recovery time was also shortened.
The two components of dental activators are:
- Labial bow
- Acrylic portion
These dental appliances can correct a range of conditions. Our orthodontists often recommend their use for:
- Class II, division I angle malocclusion
- Inverted incisors
- Sagittal jaw relationships
- Decreased facial height
- Class III problems
- Angle class II, division II malocclusion with severe crowding
Note: for people with class I bite, where there is disharmony between the size of jaws and teeth, Activators may not be the best option.
Results – What can you Expect:
The results vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of the malocclusion, the patient’s age, and oral health.
Also, special care would be needed for a week. To be specific, some swelling may be visible around your mouth which will gradually go away. It’s better to have follow-up sessions at particular intervals with your dental professional for up to four months until the teeth take the final position.
