Aim: The aim of the research was to determine the influence of removable and fixed appliances for positioning the mandible forward. Materials & Methods: 78 patients in two age groups were examined: 40 children 8-12 years old (20 with normal occlusion and 20 with distal) and 38 children 12-15 years old (20 with normal occlusion and 18 with distal. Children in the first group were treated with Persin appliance for distal occlusion treatment and in the second group-with fixed hybrid type appliances. All the patients were examined on the biopostural platform BioPostural System (Galbiati). Results: Average norms of statokineziograms were obtained for children with normal occlusion according to the age. In children with distal occlusion the impairment of basic stabilometric parameters (length, sway area, ellipse surface) takes place in comparison with their coevals with normal occlusion. In children 8-12 years old treated with Persin appliance observed the improvement of stabilometric parameters in 87% cases. In children 12-15 years old treated with fixed hybrid type appliances-in 70% cases. In monitoring conducted orthodontic treatment, this improvement remains stable after 3 and 6 months in 75% cases in the first and second group. Conclusions: After treating of children with functional orthodontic appliances (removable and fixed), there is a significant improvement in postural balance.
