Ins and outs of Orthos®
What do you get when you combine the most precise bracket system with the proven material benefits of titanium?
New and improved Titanium Orthos — the finest straightwire twin appliance on the market that improves every aspect of conventional straightwire treatment from start to finish.
Orthos, the first computer-engineered coordinated system of brackets and wires, was designed to eliminate the common challenges of everyday treatment. Precision bracket geometries and a coordinated arch form reduce the need for compensating wire bends and deliver quality results from crown to root tip.
With Titanium Orthos I have reduced my finishing appointments to 2 to 3 visits. Nothing has had as profound an impact on my practice. by Joe Gray, DDS, MS
Harnessing The Power of Titanium
My patients love the comfort they get from the stored energy of Titanium Orthos. I love the predictable finishing I get from the consistent ‘overdrive’ return.

With Titanium Orthos, we experienced an 85% reduction in bond failures!
by David M. Sarver, DMD, MS
Titanium use has exploded in a variety of industries from sports to medicine due to its inherent strength, flexibility, durability, resistance to corrosion, and biocompatibility. Titanium has become the standard in golf driver faces, with its unique flex and precision return. But the unique stored energy properties of titanium extend far beyond the tee box.These same attributes make it the material of choice for surgical implants and the ideal choice for orthodontics. Well-documented in archwires, the unique stored energy properties of titanium deliver sustained continuous forces.
The body of the Titanium Orthos bracket is designed to flex when activated with an archwire and to store up to 40% of the initial load and gently deliver the load throughout treatment.
Just as titanium works in titanium alloy archwires, titanium brackets and buccal tubes provide a far more predictable return and precise expression at unloading over an extended period of time versus stainless steel.
Experience the exciting benefits of Titanium Orthos for yourself.
Fit and Forget
Tooth-specific pad shapes and contours make Titanium Orthos brackets amazingly easy to place for more-accurate finishing and reduced mid-treatment repositioning. Titanium’s chemical affinity to adhesives and superior shock absorbency deliver unmatched bond retention. Recent in-office studies have demonstrated significant reduction in bond failures. With Titanium Orthos, you simply fit and forget until the end of treatment, providing greater clinical and practice efficiency.
• Tooth-shaped pads on every bracket for easy and consistent placement
• Unmatched bond retention – up to 85% fewer bond failures
Bondable Buccal Tubes
Titanium Orthos buccal tubes combine the shock absorbency and adhesive affinity of titanium with a revolutionary design that makes bonding easier and more reliable.
• Teardrop design — Minimized occlusal interference. (1)
• Large pad size — Increased bond strength. (2)
• Funneled slot opening — Easy wire engagement without added size. (3)
• Handling notch — Easy to hold with a cotton plier or bracket holder. (4)
• ID dot — Compatible with the Orthos appliance system. (5)
• Far fewer bond failures — Adhesives flow into titanium mesh more deeply for maximum mechanical retention.
• Biocompatible — Made from the same materials used in medical devices, for your patients’ peace of mind.
The bio-engineered geometries of the Titanium Orthos appliance are designed to work specifically with the industry’s first coordinated archwire system. Although the arch form may seem unorthodox, it reflects programmed compensations like low-profile anteriors, tooth-specific in/outs, and improved molar torque. The combination delivers finishing precision heralded by the world’s most demanding clinicians. The Orthos® arch form comes in a full complement of sizes, alloys and configurations to treat all your cases effectively and efficiently from start to precision finish.
