  • BRACKETING REVIEW
  • Learning Objectives • Wire Technology • Wire insertion and removal • Indications for a type of wire
  • WIRES
  • What should an assistant know? Different types of wires……. 1: Shape ( main types) - round - rectangular
  • Different types • Nickel Titanium – Non Bendale – Super elastic – Very flexible – Come back to original shape • Stainless steel – Bendable – Fairly rigid
  • Nickel Titanium wires
  • Use of Nickel Titanium • Initial Alignment • Correction of rotations • Torque control
  • Most popular sizes for NiTi Size Contact information O.014 round Initial alignment 0.016-0.018 round Completion of alignment Rotations 0.016x0.022 Complete alignment Torque initiation 0.018x0.025 Completion of torque
  • Pre expansion
  • TORQUE?
  • Torque control • You need a rectangular wire in a bracket.
  • Torque: only with rectangular wires
  • Torque
  • Torque correcion and arch form development
  • 6 to 7 appointments NitiWiresize 0.014 0.016x0,025 Sequence ( normal for the MGH) 0.016
  • Stainless steel wires • Working wire • Set up arch shape • Slide teeth on wire ( railroad track) • Coordination of arches
  • Most popular sizes for SS Size Contact information 0.016-0.018 round Bends to accommodate tooth anatomy 0.016x0.022 Sliding mechanics Arch form Coordination 0.018x0.025 Same but stiffer
  • Arch coordination with SS wires
  • 5 years post ortho
  • How do we tie wires to brackets
  • What do we use to insert a wire into the brackets • Mathieu plier
  • What do we use to insert a wire into the brackets • Weingart or Howe
  • What do we use to cut a wire? • Wire cutter • Distal end cutter
  • Conclusions • 2 main types of wires • Come in different sizes • Different purposes • Different ways to tie wires to brackets • Weingart is used to insert and remove wires • Distal end cutter is used to cut a wire
