The little one with the perfect cut
Small in size with brilliant qualities. This is the new premium metal bracket from Dentaurum: discovery® smart
. This mini bracket is the result of consistent advancement of the longstanding and well proven brackets discovery®
. It complements the bracket series with smaller dimensions and an innovatively designed arched slot. It provides a definite improvement in comfort for the patient due to a significant reduction in size of around 20% in comparison to the discovery®
, without any loss of torque and angulation control. Another highlight is the new mesial-distal curved slot direction, which follows the ideal curvature of the dental arch. This has a positive effect on the sliding mechanism of the arch wire.
The well proven design characteristics of the discovery® bracket family are mirrored in this new family member: generously sized, rounded bracket wing undercuts provide plenty of space for all types of ligatures, even when multiple ligatures or a combination with rubber chains are used. The fact that all brackets within the discovery® family have the same in-out values of 0.7mm, means that they are all combinable with one another without requiring compensatory bending. This provides even more flexibility for each individual treatment method.
discovery® smart is a real, single-piece bracket which is produced using modern metal injection moulding methods (MIM). This means the bracket is especially biocompatible due to the fact that solder has been totally eliminated. Even the hooks on the canine, and on request also on the premolar brackets, are designed in advance on the bracket and injected directly in one piece. The innovative mushroom shape means the rubber bands have sufficient support. The customary perfect bond to the tooth is of course due to the laser structured base patented by Dentaurum. In addition to this, the patented FDI tooth indication marking, which is integrated in the base of the bracket, enables each bracket to be assigned specifically to the correct tooth. The 3D CAD is programmed to the anatomy of the tooth, this means that the discovery® smart is especially easy to position. The bracket adapts itself perfectly to the tooth surface without slipping.
