With Optimesh XRT, Ormco has once again redefined the standards of the optimal direct bond. Optimesh XRT incorporates our popular Mini Diamond® bracket series and Peerless® and Accent® buccal tubes with a specially treated bonding pad that enhances bond strength by 35% and minimizes cleanup at debonding.
SEM photographs show a comparison of untreated mesh and Optimesh XRT. The Optimesh XRT coating not only dramatically increases available bonding surfaces, but also enhances the undercuts in the mesh, a critical factor in increasing adhesive-to-mesh bond strength.
Bondable M/P Terminal Tubes are small (2 mm m-d dimension) Peerless tubes on curved Optimesh XRT bases adapted to fit on the mesiobuccal cusps of partially erupted molars. The .022 tubes are also available nickel-brazed to upper molar crowns to accommodate archwires used in CBJ therapy.
Bondable Pix Tubes are small (2 mm m-d dimension) Peerless tubes on standard Optimesh XRT bases for upper or lower, right or left second molars.
