Top comfort is the first and only protector of brackets made of light-curing orthodontic wax on the market that prevents injuries possibly caused by contact between the components of fixed braces (brackets, tubes) and the soft tissues in the mouth of the patient. It is light curing and indicated for coating protuberant and/or acute parts of orthodontic braces that are in contact with the cheek or tongue, forming a smooth and rounded surface to prevent abrasion, perforations and other forms of local irritation.
CHARACTERISTICS AND ADVANTAGES
• Effective protection: gives a rounded form to the pointy edges of fixed parts of dental braces that could damage the soft tissues of the mouth.
• Easy to apply: direct from the syringe (ready to use), with suitable viscosity to prevent undesired outflow.
• Lasting comfort: resistant resin that is retained on the location where it is applied, enabling recovery from injury.
• Convenience for the patient: no need for frequent re-applications.
• Aesthetics: color and translucency that do not significantly interfere in the aesthetics of the smile.
• Simple removal: when necessary, the polymer can be easily fragmented and removed with the aid of small pliers.
• Coating the protuberant/angled parts of orthodontic braces (braces, tubes), preventing injuries to soft tissues in the mouth.
• Coating the exposed head of mini-implants in order to avoid damage to the mucosa and/or help in the fixation of the springs and wires.
• Producing stops in orthodontic wire in biomechanics with self-ligating braces, preventing the wire from slipping and hurting the soft tissues.
• Producing stops in orthodontic wire aimed at helping guided orthodontic movements.
• Producing stops in orthodontic wire to lock open springs and prevent direct action on the tooth (bracket).
• In cases of dental traction (impacted teeth), it helps in fixing the ligature wire to the bracket. At the end where the ligature wire is attached to the orthodontic wire, Top comfort prevents the ligature from becoming loose from the nitinol wire using the property of the wire for the movement.
