Memory Shape archwires with progressive forces by TOMY
The true engine behind the appliance, orthodontic archwires have to meet both therapeutic requirements and patient comfort standards.
For 30 years, Tomy® Inc has been recognized as the most demanding NiTi manufacturer in regards to the biological response of its alloys.
From the superelasticity of INITIALLOY archwires to the shape memory of BioEdge and BioActive®, we offer archwires exerting light and continuous forces, well adapted to every phase of treatment.
BIO-ACTIVE is a shape memory archwire exerting progressive force from the midline to the posterior sectors.
Its forces are consistent with those found to be biologically necessary to move each individual tooth along the arch:
- Arches .016"x.016" and .016"x.022" from 80g on incisors up to 240g on molars
- Arches .018"x.018" to .021"x.028 from 80g on incisors up to 300g on molars
In order to best use shape memory, cool the archwire before its insertion.
Some archwires are available with a central V-Bend (or «dimple»).
In that case, a letter D appears in the P/N. (please refer to the GC Orthodontics Products Catalog)
