Nuvola® OP System

An innovative method that combines the orthopedic concepts of lingual and cranial function with orthodontic clear aligners.
Traditional aligners have been redesigned to create the OP System aligners, a functional as well as mechanical device which employs the muscular force of the tongue

The OP System clear aligners work in synergy with Axel® a myofunctional device.
The patient is required to use the Axel® device for thirty minutes every day.
Thanks to its specially designed form and material, Axel produces forces that improve dental alignment. These forces interact with those produced by the Nuvola OP aligners to enhance their efficacy.

Thanks to this system dentists are able to treat cases that would not be suitable for therapies with conventional aligners.

Lingual pins
The lingual pins on the Nuvola OP aligners guide the tongue towards the retro-incisive papilla and therefore act as an essential support for better lingual movements and positioning.

Reinforced sectors
The reinforcements of the Nuvola Op aligners are designed to exercise lateral forces that produce an expansion of the palate.

axel® is a device that leads to balance contraction (not affected by malocclusion) of pterygoid muscles,
along with other masticatory muscles.
The forces developed synergistically will lead to a centrifugal tension effect, directed backwards and outwards,
generating a functional expansion of the palate especially in its retropalatal region.
This effect is extremely useful to stabilise orthodontically the generated functional expansion, as well as the posture.
The lateral pterygoids which are synergetic to few muscles (trapezius, sternocleidomastoid up to psoas) will both increase their tone, balance and symmetry.

Treat more cases!

Thanks to Nuvola OP System complex cases can be addressed without the use of invasive devices or surgical methods.

Treatable conditions

  • Skeletal classes II and III
  • Deep bite / open bite
  • Monolateral and bilateral cross-bite
  • Severe transverse discrepancies
  • Hyperdivergent open bite

It is particularly indicated for patients who would be difficult or unpredictable to treat with aligners alone. This means that you can increase the numbers of patients in your care.

Advantages of the Nuvola OP System

  • Possibility to treat more cases
  • Less invasive techniques
  • A more rapid therapeutic process
  • A new innovative scientific approach

Reduce treatment time

The Nuvola OP System significantlyreduces the duration of therapy.

  • Effective alignment time is cut by 33%
  • “Chair time” in the dental clinic is cut by 50%
  • Reduces the number of appointments
  • Reduce clinical refinement time
  • Eliminates the need for refinement aligners
