Even faster treatments
DuoForce® offers orthodontists an archwire which, thanks to its exceptional properties, offers a three-dimension control from the start. The division of the archwire into two different force zones with a seamless transition makes this possible. Lower forces are exerted on the anterior teeth, and stronger forces are generated in the posterior/molar area. Therefore, DuoForce® can already be used as an initial archwire, in order to achieve an alignment of the anterior teeth with simultaneous torque control. This reduces the total number of treatment archwires and increases the speed of the treatment. The archwires are made of a copper-nickel-titanium alloy, in which the copper content ensures an even lower force than in NiTi archwires. The shape memory alloy enables the archwires to reliably return to their original shape, with consistent forces, no matter how far the archwires are deflected. Thanks to their thermo-activity DuoForce® archwires are very easy to insert in the bracket slot and only become active in the patient’s mouth.
