self-ligating orthodontic bracket
Designed by you...
When GAC made the most successful self-ligating bracket, they set the bar pretty high. But that’s the challenge of innovation. Taking the best in class and taking it to the next level. That's why we spoke to orthodontic professionals across eight countries in three continents. It was a thought-provoking process that revealed more than 100 individual items that were important to the clinicians we spoke with. After the information was collected, we analyzed our findings point by point. This enabled us to hone in on the design elements that the orthodontic community thought were most important. Ultimately, 3 key ideas were identified:
You wanted a lower profile bracket, especially in the anterior region, that maintained the interactive properties and straight wire principles.
You wanted a robust clip, strong enough to maintain integrity through the entire course of treatment.
You wanted a clip that was easy to work with. One that included a hole on the facial surface for a simple opening method and designed to mitigate calculus interference with the opening mechanism.
