MEAW Method (Multi Loop Edgewise Arch Wire) An Alternative to Surgery
This is a very innovative technique that allows orthodontists to treat surgical patients without surgery, while utilizing braces. It was developed by Dr. Kim at Tufts University in Boston. If you have been told that you are a surgical candidate (ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY) it would be prudent to ask Dr. King if you are a candidate for MEAW.
How does it work? This technique allows me to change the occlusal plane and cranial base angle. The procedure itself is an extremely complicated technique for an orthodontist to utilize. Since it is always my goal to stay on the cutting edge of technology for the benefit of my patients I have included the MEAW technique as one of my treatment options. There is only one other orthodontist in all of South Florida who includes this option as one of their technical skills. It is my privilege to be able to offer my patients a non-invasive alternative to surgery.
