DentSply OrthoLab™. Orthodontic Laboratory Services.


  • Designed to correct crossbites, narrow arches and crowding. Usually uses bands on 1st bicuspids and 1st molars. For mixed dentition, bands are only on 1st molars. If required, reverse pull face mask hooks may be added, as well as vertical habit cribs or archwire tubes. Double-guide pin screw allows 11mm of expansion. A compact, single-guide pin screw may also be used.
  • Features wire framework bent
around buccal and lingual of
posterior teeth with occlusal
acrylic covering. Bonded to the
arch, it works well for patients with
deciduous teeth or mixed dentition.
Wire debonding loops or debonding
screws may be incorporated to
facilitate removal. If required,
reverse pull face mask hooks may
be added, as well as vertical habit
cribs or archwire tubes.
  • 11mm double guide pin
expansion screw has anterior
arms soldered to deciduous 2nd
molar bands, while distal arms
are bent to contact lingual of 1st
molars, but not soldered to 1st
molar bands. Allows rapid palatal
expansion and molar distalization
by adding a coil spring on the
archwire between 2nd deciduous
molar and 1st molar.
  • Use with 1st molar bands,
or also include 1st bicuspid
bands. Acrylic-embedded
expansion screw is placed
in vault of palate. Support
wires are bent to contact
lingual of posterior teeth.
  • Innovative design delivers full 18mm of expansion. Small profile and round, smooth shape provides greater patient comfort and excellent hygiene. A hex wrench is supplied for ease of activation. Available in bonded or banded styles.
  • May be fabricated with either 1st molar bands or as an acrylic-bonded expander. Unique screw only allows for anterior expansion without any posterior widening. Commonly used on cleft palate cases.
  • Designed for transverse expansion of lower arch. Features 1st molar bands and a single guide pin expansion screw to reduce bulk.
  • Requires bands on 1st molars. One
400g nickel titanium coil spring
delivers slow, controlled arch
expansion for patients with collapsed
arches or crossbites. Activate
by pushing a lock mechanism to
compress the coil spring, and then
use a wrench to tighten the screw
in the lock mechanism to hold the
compression. Available in fixed or
removable designs.
  • Requires bands on 1st bicuspids
and 1st molars. Two 400g nickel
titanium coil springs achieve
rapid palatal expansion with
reliable results and minimal
tipping. Activate by pushing a
lock mechanism to compress
the coil springs, and then use a
wrench to tighten the screw in
the lock mechanism to hold the
compression.
  • Fixed appliance soldered
to bands on 1st molars.
A .040 body wire is
contoured to the palate
with lingual arms that
extend up to deciduous
cuspids.
  • Heat-activated wire begins
expanding after it is placed in
the mouth and reaches body
temperature. The wire is
inserted into lingual sheaths
that are laser-welded to 1st
molar bands.
  • Used for expansion of
mandibular arch. Resilient
.036 blue Elgiloy® wire is
soldered to 1st molar bands,
with a loop near each 1st
molar and lingual arms
extending to deciduous
cuspids.
  • Easily removed from sheaths,
eliminating need for debanding
and recementing to make
adjustments. Curved loop and
sheath allow for anterior teeth
clearance upon insertion. Four
.035 wire helices provide excellent
elasticity. Extra long arms provide
force for expansion,
contraction,
rotation or torque.
  • Used for expansion of
maxillary arch. Resilient .038
blue Elgiloy® wire is soldered
to 1st molar bands, with
horizontal loops and lingual
arms extending to deciduous
cuspids. Tongue/thumb habit
loops can also be soldered on.
  • Used to break a thumb-sucking habit. Body wire is soldered to molar bands, providing support for an anterior orally placed “roller”. Patient is encouraged to turn the roller with their tongue, instead of sucking their thumb.
  • Used to break a tongue-thrust habit. Body wire is soldered to molar bands, providing support for a vertical tongue crib, which prevents the tongue from thrusting anterior orally.
  • Used to break a thumb-sucking habit. Body wire is soldered to molar bands, providing support for a crib that is formed parallel to the palate so that the patient’s thumb cannot contact the upper palate, thereby inhibiting suction.
  • Designed for distalization and rotation of
maxillary 1st molars. .032 Beta Titanium
springs slide into .036 lingual sheaths
delivering light continuous force. Anterior
anchorage is provided through use of
occlusally bonded rests on deciduous
molars or 1st and 2nd bicuspids. Substitute
bands on 1st deciduous molars or
bicuspids for increased retention.
  • Designed for arch expansion and
distalization and rotation of maxillary 1st
molars. .032 Beta Titanium springs slide
into .036 lingual sheaths delivering light
continuous force. Anterior anchorage
is provided through use of occlusally
bonded rests on deciduous molars or 1st
and 2nd bicuspids. Substitute bands on
1st deciduous molars or bicuspids for
increased retention.
  • Identical to Pend-X appliance except
a holding wire is soldered to lingual of
the bands, extending into the acrylic,
rendering titanium springs passive.
This allows for delivery of expansion
before distalization forces are applied.
When ready for distalization, simply
snip the holding wire off.
  • Fixed lingual appliance designed to
produce either unilateral or bilateral
molar distalization without patient
compliance. Bands are placed on 1st
molars and either 1st or 2nd bicuspids.
240g nickel titanium coil springs
deliver the force for molar distalization.
After distalization, appliance can be
converted to a Nance Button Holding
Appliance. An expansion screw may be
added for transverse expansion.
  • Fixed appliance with buccal and
lingual pistons placed at the
gingival level. This reduces the
distance of applied force from the
center of resistance of the molar,
producing bodily molar movement
with almost no tipping. Available
with or without RPE.
  • After braces are removed,
may be placed from cuspid to
cuspid (or 2-2 or 1-1) on either
upper or lower arch to ensure
teeth maintain their ideal arch
form. Comes standard with
bondable mesh pads on the
canines.
  • After braces are removed, may be
placed from cuspid to cuspid (or
2-2 or 1-1) on either upper or lower
arch to ensure teeth maintain their
ideal arch form. Comes standard
with custom bondable mesh pads
on each individual tooth.
  • During mixed dentition phase,
may be placed to prevent
unwanted movement when
deciduous teeth exfoliate.
  • Used during mixed dentition phase. Space Maintainer is used to prevent unwanted movement when deciduous teeth exfoliate. Space Regainer is used to regain space lost due to tipping of permanent molar into the space left by an exfoliated tooth.
  • Used on upper or lower arch; exceptional for deep
bites. Hexacat 6 strand coaxial wire is contoured
to lingual of teeth and a soft, clear transfer tray is
thermoformed over the wire. The tray has individual
“wells” to provide precise placement of bonding
material, and “breather” holes to allow excess
bonding material to escape when seating. Once
bond has set, tray is easily peeled off, and each
bond can be smoothed and adjusted to allow for
proper occlusion.
