STb™ Light Lingual System

Patient demand for aesthetic solutions is driving interest and popularity in lingual brackets as some patients seek improvements to their smiles without the appearance of metal or ceramic brackets. The STb system is a single wing lingual bracket with a ligation notch designed to minimize friction if desired.

The STb Light Lingual system encompasses advanced knowledge in lingual technology as is designed for patient comfort and ease of use. Developed by two of the leading lingual practitioners in the world: Drs Giusseppe Scuzzo and Kyoto Takemoto.

  • Small design for minimal impact on tongue position and speech.
  • Excellent solution for those cases that are not suitable for aligner treatment because they offer aesthetics and the control only fixed appliances can provide.
  • Compliance issues that can come with aligners are not a concern with the STB system and there are no interruptions in treatment time.
  • Can be used on all levels of cases.
  • STb social 6 was introduced for minor to moderate cases involving anterior teeth.
  • STb cases can be prepared with a standard indirect set up by AOA Lab or lab of your choice.
