Traditional Straight-Wire Features
Compound Contour for Snug Fit – Each Synthesis bracket is designed with tooth-specific contours in the base. These contours mirror the anatomy of the middle third of each tooth to ensure accurate placement and snug fit.
Torque-in-Base for Accurate Placement – With the Synthesis appliance, the center of the slot and the center of the base are always on the same plane. Torque-in-the-base
ensures consistent, reliable placement and makes level slot lineup possible.
Level Slot Lineup for Less Wire Bending – With the Synthesis appliance, the slot of the bracket will always be parallel to the occlusal plane of the arch, eliminating time consuming wire bends.
Rhomboid Design for Easier Placement – The rhomboid bracket and pad design, incorporated throughout the Synthesis System, provides numerous references for easier bracket placement. The horizontal aspects align parallel to the occlusal plane and the vertical aspects align parallel to the crown-long axis of each tooth. These visual cues make bracket placement more precise.
Optimesh® XRT for Improved Bond Retention – Optimesh XRT is a feature in all Synthesis brackets. It’s a treated 100- gauge mesh that creates additional undercuts and is proven to increase bond strengths up to 35%.
Functionality with Aesthetics – Synthesis is specifically engineered to combine the rotational control of the Straight-Wire® appliance with the aesthetics of the Mini-Twin™ in applicable brackets.
Straight-Wire Synthesis Marking System
For your convenience and ease-of-use, we have maintained the traditional Straight-Wire color identification on the distogingival tie-wing and the letter marking on the bracket.
