OrthoEssentials_3StrandOrthoEssentials_DeadSoftOrthoEssentials, Mount Holly, NJ, offers two new wire options for lingual retention—an 8-braid, flat, dead soft wire (pictured, left) and three-strand, flat stainless steel wire (pictured, right). The three strand wire is ideal when a stiffer, broader wire is called for during lingual retention.

While both wire options perform similar functions, each wire offers the clinician the choice of a more specialized wire depending on how the patient presents.
