The Optimal Force Bracket System from OrthoQuest have three* incisal tie wings and a gingival pendulum allowing for better control and management of progression of force through treatment by changing the way the wire is ligated in the slot. All brackets have a ball hook on the gingival tip, a beveled slot for increased inter-bracket distance, a centered scribe line for accurate alignment, and torque in base to magnify force and reduce friction. Bracket base is micro-etched to improve bond strength for maximum retention. Brackets are low profile for exceptional patient comfort. Offered in Roth script with an .022 slot.
|The triangular shape of the Optimal Force bracket
makes it very easy to place with three reference points.
|Optimal Force cuspid brackets are offered with power hooks for
increased efficiency in closing spaces and retracting anterior teeth.
Recommended wires: We recommend starting with Vision Thermal-Flex™ Multi-Force heat activated Niti wires with a dimple. The varying forces in the three segments of the wire combined with varying force levels in ligation allow for better control of the entire arch. A 20×20 wire will begin torqueing immediately, and can be used as the first wire. CuTanium™ copper NiTi will also work well with the Optimal Force brackets since ligating controls the friction. When torqueing, leveling and aligning are complete, move to a Stainless Steel wire.
