Ortho Technology Inc, Lutz, Fla, introduced its new dual-system self-ligating bracket, the Lotus Plus® DS.
The low profile Lotus Plus features a twin-wing design, while also offering one-piece strength, high slot manufacturing tolerances, and unique planar clip design, according to the company. Passive, interactive, and hybrid options are available.
Additional features include a thermal nickel-titanium clip that is easy to open and nonremovable. Made from 17-4 stainless steel, it reportedly offers 40% higher bond-strength than standard 80-gauge mesh pd bases. There is the option to add colored elastomeric ligatures.
The Lotus Plus DS is available in most popular prescriptions.
