Superelastic NiTi

High flexibility and resiliency!

Along with low-friction, Superelastic1 (SE1) wire rounds out AEL’s austenitic Nickel Titanium wire line. The moderate, consistent forces exhibited by SE1 wire provide a great avenue for early to mid-stage treatment. It provides slightly less force than our and is fully austenitic at room temperature. Due to its high flexibility and resilience, AEL Superelastic wire recovers beautifully from bends and deformation of angles up to 45 grade and even up to75 grade in some cases!

  • Moderate, consistent force over a long activation period – Excellent resiliency – A of 45/60 grades F (7.2- 15.6 C)
  • Responsive to chilling   –  Highly flexible – More efficient than Stainless Steel – Greater patient comfort than with Stainless Steel wires – – Square and Rectangle wires offer ability to simultaneously level and add torque and rotation earlier in treatment.

Reverse Curve of Spee

 

Available in NiTi Superelastic . All are carefully finished to ensure that the wire slides easily though the bracket slot and applies continuous force for ideal movement. RCS can be used for bite correction or, with springs and elastomeric, for retraction. – Superelastic RCS wires provide light to moderate, constant forces. These wires are flexible and exhibit excellent resiliency.

– Bite opening or closing – Initial leveling and aligning –
Arch consolidation and expansion – Deep and open bite correction – Retraction of flared, protruding incisors

RCS is our most popular Reverse Curve of Speed arch wire. The moderate radius exerts ideal force for correction of severe curve of spee cases.

 

Torqued Arches

 

Nickel Titanium Torqued Arches are full-sized NiTi arch- wires with
the anterior section pre-torqued to 20°. These specialized, preformed wires allow for the addition of torque into the anterior region while maintaining non-torque in the posterior regions. Provides 20° anterior torque. Three anterior torque segment widths available. Allows early introduction of torque in upper centrals and laterals Provides Uprighting torque in the lower anterior segment Either labial or lingual torque, depending on applied wire orientation Ideal for passive, self-ligating bracket systems Nickel Titanium provides lower forces, better resiliency, and longer activation range as compared to Stainless Steel alternatives. The 2 marks on the side indicate the direction of the 20° anterior torque. If you lay the wire on a flat surface so that the legs are facing away, like a “U”, the 2 marks on the side need to be on the left. This identifies the direction of anterior torque, as when you press on the anterior torque the legs will lift off the surface. This is meant to be similar as when the clinician is installing the wire, legs facing into the patient, 2 marks on the left leg, will show that the posterior legs lift upwards.”
