5 STARS PRODUCTS
Today's advanced adhesives coupled with high performance, light force wires have allowed clinicians to greatly expand the use of direct bond tubes on the molars. Direct bond molar tubes reduce inventory requirements, are often more comfortable and hygienic for the patient, and bond and debond quickly and easily. American Orthodontics offers the most complete line of direct bond molar tubes in the industry — including ifit® and LP® Tubes — most complete line of direct bond molar tubes in the industry.
“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.
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.
• Non-Latex and hypo-allergenic • All 29 colors match plastic ligature colors • Stain resistant and colorfast medical grade polyurethane
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.
• 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
