IDEA-L lingual brackets feature small mesio-distal sizes, 1.4 mm depth and a special bracket design which make the application of Slide ligatures easy. In most cases, the use of a round NiTi wire .012″ is sufficient to get the solution of overcrowding and the aesthetical improvement of smile.
In cases of dental rotations and/or major misplacements, NiTi or Beta-Titan wires of higher diameter and conventional ligatures may also be used to gain biomechanical control. To get perfect alignment and levelling of the anterior teeth, an accurate position of the bracket is necessary; it is therefore advisable to use an indirect bonding technique with arch transfer trays made in the laboratory or with the special “Jigs” conceived for this technique.
Idea-L lingual brackets feature small mesio-distal sizes and 1,4 mm thickness to ensure patient acceptance and minimize speech issues starting from the first day of treatment. The special design of the bracket makes the application of Slide™* ligature simple and keeps it in place during treatment.
The use of Slide™ ligatures offers several advantages:
• Slide™ ligatures embody the profile of the bracket, making it smooth and comfortable
• Slide™ ligatures allow to take advantage of the biomechanical light forces
• Slide™ ligatures make treatment time shorter.
Designed for 2D biomechanics with the use of round wires only, this lingual system doesn’t require any elaborate and expensive set up of models. To get a perfect alignment and levelling of the frontal teeth, an accurate positioning of the bracket is necessary; it is therefore advisable to use an indirect bonding technique with arch transfer trays realized in the laboratory or with the special “Jigs” conceived for this technique. Plastic jigs are manufactured in six sizes to allow the choice of the most correct position according to the anatomy of the lingual surface of the tooth.
