Springtime bracket provides you with the ability to start and effectively finish your treatment with one, simple system. Springtime system enables you to maintain the precise degree of control that you need for each phase of your patient’s treatment. Springtime’s unique Interactive technology means you can choose the degree of engagement between the bracket and wire. It can be passive for leveling and aligning, expressive where control is realized and free-sliding is maintained, or active for controlled, optimal finishing.

Passive Phase
Small round wires slide freely, initiating the tooth movement process as the archwire gently levels the teeth and coaxes them into alignment.

Expressive Phase
Square or rectangular wires are seated into the base of the slot without contacting the clip. Rotations are corrected and space closures are completed.

Active Phase
Rectangular archwires extend beyond the slot to fully engage the clip, providing the active control necessary for finishing uprighting of the roots and adjusting the torque

GENERAL INFORMATION AND SCIENTIFIC REPORTS

SmartBond – A New Approach to Bonding

SmartBond gives you the opportunity to bond brackets and buccal tubes in a wet field.

It is important that the tooth surface is kept wet during the bonding procedure. The water will start the polymerization and initiate the curing process. No other chemicals are necessary.

Clinical Procedure Report
Bonding Adhesive Report
Cyanoacrylate Adhesive Report

BONDING/DEBONDING

A thermoactivated BioForce .018x.025 as an initial archwire can be ligated after 3-5 min.
Leave the excess adhesive on the enamel after bonding and simply spray with water. The adhesive will polymerize instantly and turn into a white powder that will be brushed off by the patient, and you save time.
After 14 months of treatment, there is no discoloration when bonding with SmartBond.
Same debonding procedure as with other adhesives.
SmartBond will not cause any enamel damage.

Indirect Bonding

SmartBond is the perfect adhesive for indirect technique.
Bracket tray section bonded with SmartBond.

OTHER APPLICATIONS

Good for bonding of tooth jewelery.
Excellent for bonding of eruption appliances for impacted canines.
SmartBond also works in saliva and blood. Click on the link for an instruction movie;
Impacted tooth exposure & uncovering for orthodontics.

BITE BUMPER™

Opens Deep Bite Without Trauma

Bite-Bumpers work in open and deep bite cases by allowing the anteriors to ride up and out of occlusion. The Bite-Bumpers eliminate bond failures of brackets and are especially valuable with ceramic or self-ligating brackets.

The unique fixed ”placement-jig” guarantees the correct height on the lingual of the tooth and makes sure the two Bite-Bumpers are 100 % parallel.

The Bite-Bumpers are made of a composite polymer that is more comfortable, aesthetic and will increase biocompatibility in nickel sensitive patients.

Bite-Bumpers are bonded in the same manner as metal or ceramic brackets. The Bite-Bumpers have a slotted mechanical bonding base.
The placement-jig can easily be removed by hand or by a cutting instrument after bonding – see illustration.

Instructions

1. Put the placement-jig
against the incisal edge
2. Remove the jig 3. Bite-Bumper ready

Makes half circle 6mm cutouts on clear aligners around bonded Freddy button/hooks – or similar – used for elastics. Also removes excessive plastic to prevent aligner impingement of tissue.

The Droplet
Part # AL-111

Makes a cut at the gingival edge on the aligner where elastic hooks are required and facilitates space for the elastics to stay in place when the aligner is positioned.

The Parallel Marker
Part # AL-112

Makes a horizontal indent in the plastics for individual root torque or increasing retention of the aligners by placing the indent under a bonded attachment or on the tooth’s undercut.

The Perpendicular Marker
Part # AL-113

Makes a vertical impression in the aligner and creates overcorrection of rotation with an indent at the mesial/distal line, facial or lingual of a specific tooth.
