ADHESIVE ACID ETCHANT LIQUID GREEN 37% • 18 g Bottle • Optimal viscosity for ease of application • Rinses off quickly & easily
Maximum Retention™ Bands
All Maximum Retention bands have an etched interior that virtually eliminates loose bands and permanent laser marked sizing for easy sorting and identification.
• Highly effective wire across all phases of treatment • Exhibits intermediate stiffness between super-elastic nickel titanium wire and stainless steel • Highly formable with twice the spring-back of stainless steel • Arches feature extra length to facilitate multiple loops and bends • Nickel free
BracePaste® is a medium viscosity, light-curable adhesive that provides optimum bonding of metal and ceramic brackets. The adhesive is designed to minimize bracket drift and provide easy flash cleanup. It allows for immediate arch wire tie-in after light curing, and fluoresces under UV light to assist in clean up. BracePaste is stored at room temperature, and is compatible with most light cure orthodontic sealants and bond enhancers.
• Bonds to wet or dry enamel • Works with all light curable bracket adhesives • 6 mL bottle
“Empower 2 Clear is a smartly redesigned enhancement of its aesthetic bracket.”
Engineered from the ground up for performance and beauty, the polycrystalline material is formulated to deliver uncompromising strength. Empower 2 Clear brackets are designed using state of the art CAD modeling and computerized simulation resulting in improved mechanical strength. Through extensive internal lab testing, American Orthodontics has also refined the debonding predictability of its patented Quad Matte technology – all without compromising the aesthetic clarity of the bracket.
• Non-Latex and hypo-allergenic • All 29 colors match plastic ligature colors • Stain resistant and colorfast medical grade polyurethane
American Orthodontics takes great pride in manufacturing our Wildlife Series elastics using top quality latex tubing with perfect thickness. Our proprietary technique results in precision cutting and guarantees consistent pulling forces.
• Lightest force heat activated wire, transitions to its active state at 35˚ C • Soft at room temperature for easy and comfortable wire insertion • All cross sections are best suited for low force applications • Rectangular dimensions to deliver optimal light forces during initial treatment phase
Our new Copper Nickel Titanium wire is the latest innovation in our extensive arch wire offering, delivering consistent unloading forces that allow controlled tooth movement for predictable results. Tanzo is resilient with excellent resistance to permanent deformation and is available in mid and low force levels. Arch form options include VLP* Arch Forms, Natural Arch Form I, Natural Arch Form III, and Form A.
Stainless Steel Wire
American Orthodontics Stainless Steel arches are made from the highest quality vacuum-remelted 304V stainless steel alloy. This ensures a pure, inclusion-free arch wire, with superior tensile strength and less brittleness. All dimensions are closely monitored with state-of-the-art laser micrometers to ensure consistent and accurate tolerances. Strict corner-radius controls ensure optimal wire-to-bracket interaction. Wire torque is vigorously controlled, to prevent unwanted vertical discrepancies. All arches are carefully stress relieved and polished to reduce breakage and excess friction.
THE SMART CHOICE FOR A STRAIGHT SMILE
Empower 2 Self Ligating Braces are the right choice to help you achieve your perfect smile and can help make wearing braces a more positive experience.
Empower braces feature self ligating technology, which uses a clip to hold your arch wire in place instead of traditional rubber bands (ligatures) that can stain and wear out over time. These clips allow for quicker, easier wire adjustments, which can mean less time in the orthodontist’s chair.
