face bow


Explanation:
I know this to be correct, from recently watching my teenage son undergo all the treatment (in Britain) - the equipment in question, the flexible peice of wire which forms part of the "brace", - was German-made! A useful orthodontics site is to be found at the "braces" URL below. There's also a glossary at the 2nd site lisetd.
