The highly aesthetic ceramic bracket discovery®
pearl was presented on the annual congress of the German Society of Orthodontics (DGKFO) in Stuttgart in September 2012 and sales started as a big success. The initial reaction from the dental practices was very positive. discovery®
pearl transcends all previous boundaries of aesthetic orthodontic treatment and also meets the high demands of quality and performance set on a premium product made by Dentaurum. Its perfect geometry and size and the use of high quality materials in an innovative production process make the bracket seem virtually invisible in the mouth or even better: fascinatingly natural
discovery® pearl is available in the System MBT 22 in 3-3 or 5-5 for the maxilla. Additionally, Dentaurum offers a combi-assortment with discovery® pearl for the maxilla and the small and brilliant metal bracket discovery® smart for the mandible. For the first steps with discovery® pearl, Dentaurum offers orthodontists a complete starter set intended to make the adjustment to the system as easy as possible. The set includes 5 cases of brackets, fitting translucent archwires, ligatures with the "pearl" design, a debonding instrument and a typodont for the consultation. Dentaurum is planning to introduce discovery® pearl in the System Roth in 2013.
The bracket is based on the proven design of the discovery® family. It combines all perfectly aligned characteristics of a bracket with the elegant esthetics of a small ceramic bracket. Large, rounded wing undercuts provide ample space for all types of ligatures, even for multiple ligatures or combinations with elastic chains.
The bracket provides secure retention on the tooth throughout the entire treatment thanks to the familiar, perfectly coordinated laser-structured base, which is similar to the structure of Dentaurum metal brackets. Debonding is also very easy using the discovery® pearl debonding instrument, which was developed in-house. The bracket is easily and gently removed from the tooth without applying great force.
Placement of the translucent brackets is facilitated by a clear system of coloured placement aids. This allows the tooth-specific assignment and optimal alignment of each bracket.
As all brackets in the discovery® family have the same low in-out of only 0.7 mm, they can be easily combined with one another without compensation bends. This provides even greater flexibility in the individual design of a treatment.
