Mini-Twin™

The Mini-Twin brings a rhomboid design to a Straight-Wire appliance system. Thirty percent smaller than a standard Twin, the Mini-Twin is designed to give you the control you demand in an appliance that is more esthetic and comfortable for your patients.

  • Mini-Twin appliances feature Ultra-Lock high-retention pads on both upper and lower bicuspids, providing increased bonding surface and minimizing bond failure.
  • The vertical scribe line aligns precisely with the crown-long axis, simplifying accurate bracket placement. As is the case with all Straight-Wire Appliances, the archwire slot of Mini-Twin appliances is engineered to align with the horizontal axis of the tooth.
  • Mini-Twins are available in Andrews and Roth* prescriptions, and are fully interchangeable with any other Straight-Wire Appliance system. Options include hooks/no hooks, gingival offsets on bicuspids, super torque on upper anteriors and surgical sets.

Mini-Twin Marking System

Mini-Twin Marking System

Bracket ID illustration represents the Andrews prescription.

Each Mini-Twin bracket has a color ID system that is coordinated with the other A+ mesh products. The color ID is on the distogingival tie-wing, so that bracket identification is easy.

For added accuracy, the upper brackets have a cast dot ID and all brackets have cast letters in the saddle of the bracket identifying the tooth position.
