Lingual Archwires

Specialty Appliances offers our customers a service where lingual archwires are provided and custom bent for the individual patient using an ideal arch template. This template is made from photos of the brackets on the CLASS set up and malocclusion models. A list of wires is available to select from for this service, and clinical time required to fabricate archwires is reduced when using this Specialty Appliances service.

We provide with lingual cases the arch guide, which includes a photo of the brackets on the malocclusion model. This is used to fabricate the initial archwires. CLASS cases also include an ideal arch guide, which is made in the laboratory from a copy of the brackets on the ideal set-up. This template represents the final archwire.
