Many adults present with asymmetries of the dental arches, the cranium, and the entire body. The use of the Advanced Lightwire Functional (ALF) appliance for adult orthopedic treatment will be shown. The appliance construction, application, rational, indications for use, and the results of adding this appliance to an adult treatment regimen will be explored.
