Abstract

The concept of the appliance we describe in this article is based on a number of technological advances. The brackets, created in accordance with CAD/CAM are the product of an original process that makes them resistant to de-bonding providing a high resistance to bracket loss. They are also compatible with the use of a veritable straight wire enabling the use of prefabricated standard wires. The manufacturing process uses a maximum of digitized resources to elaborate a numerical set-up usable by the practitioners. A 3D computerised treatment control is performed from the beginning to the end of the assembly line and warrants a perfect precision of the bonding placement.

Appliances are completely personalized for each patient taking into account particular anatomic features as well as the prescriptions of practitioners. As a result practitioners will benefit from a number of theoretical advantages making treatment more pleasant and functionally smoother at every phase of therapy. Managing the Lingualjet appliance is simple and transforms straight wire lingual therapy into a procedure comparable in every way to traditional use of the straight wire in buccally bonded attachments.
