• 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
• Fully active at room temperature • Exhibits excellent springback • Gentle to patients, but powerful enough to align even the most challenging cases • Moderate forces are an excellent choice for all treatment phases except finishing
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.
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.
• 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
