Orthos is derived from computer-aided anatomical analysis of hundreds of orthodontic cases and is the first computer-engineered coordinated system of brackets and wires. The precision bracket geometries and a coordinated arch form are designed to eliminate the common challenges of everyday treatment, reducing the need for compensating wire bends and delivering quality results from crown to root tip.
Progressive distal root tip for ideal root alignment.
Improved cuspid-to-lateral and bicuspid-to-molar transitions eliminate the need for common firstorder bends.
Low-profile lower anterior brackets with compensated-slot cuspids and a coordinated arch form for reduced occlusal interference and greater patient comfort.
The bio-engineered geometries of the Orthos appliance are designed to work specifically with the industry’s first coordinated archwire system. Although the arch form may seem unorthodox, it reflects programmed compensations like low-profile anteriors, tooth-specific in/outs, and improved molar torque. The combination delivers finishing precision heralded by the world’s most demanding clinicians. The Orthos arch form comes in a full complement of sizes, alloys and configurations to treat all your cases effectively and efficiently from start to precision finish.
Orthos Bracket/Wire System achieves a smooth coordinated arch form
To achieve the proper expression of the Orthos appliance, all brackets should be placed at the following heights (based on the average patient):
|Central||4.4 mm||3.9 mm|
|Lateral||3.8 mm||3.9 mm|
|Cuspid||4.4 mm||4.6 mm|
|1st Bicuspid||4.1 mm||3.9 mm|
|2nd Bicuspid||3.6 mm||3.9 mm|
