FORESTADENT, St. Louis, has introduced the second generation of its QuicKlear® self-ligating brackets.

The new version includes a more rounded bracket and slot edges to provide less friction and improved intraoral comfort, according to the company. The clip now features a matte polished surface, making it less reflective and less noticeable in the mouth.

Previous twin-winged active QuicKlear brackets were only available fror upper 5-5. The new system is available in lower 3-3 as well.

The brackets have two integrated locking mechanisms so that the clip can be opened from the buccal or gingival aspect towards the occlusal. In addition, QuicKlear features a highly pronounced guide funnel with grooves. The clip can be opened with a probe and closed with a fingertip.
