The Pozzi Straight Tip Activator is used for the initial expansion prior to the fabrication of the appliance. The straight-tip instrument is inserted halfway through the hole and given a hard turn, using the thumb and forefinger. Hardened stainless-steel tips are removable, however both tip and cone socket handle are completely sterilizable up to 350°F. Handles are lightweight and durable with a comfortable "no-slip" grip.

The Pozzi Clinical Expansor (patent pending) is an innovative new instrument used for advancing expanding appliances intraorally with a lateral approach.
