To correct minor crowding, rotation and relapse. Also excellent for passive retention, especially for patients where consistent compliance is an issue.
Common Design Features:
All spring aligners are available for both arches. Standard design is 3-3, although 4-4 is very common & often used when canine correction is desired. Wraparound designs are also available with "Mushroom" & "Super Spring" designs. Wire framework of springs is typically .028 standard lab wire but any size & temper wire may be requested. Helical coils on adjustment loops are also available with any design, they offer greater flexibility and consistent light force when retracting.
Fabrication & lab requirements:
Teeth to be aligned are cut from model & repositioned as a set-up. The appliance is constructed on the set-up, duplication of original models or set-up is available by special request. If we have been provided with an opposing arch we will hand articulate set-up to observe occlusion with the opposing arch. More severe tooth corrections may require a 2 step process and/or combination clasping for greater retention.
