MidAtlantic_Fit20-26MidAtlantic Ortho Inc, West Berlin, NJ, plans to change the brand name of its passive self-ligation bracket and extra broad wire system from FiT.20 to FiT20/26. The name change is intended to better represent the primary feature of the bracket’s .020 x .026 slot size.

The FiT20/26 .020 x .026 slot size is designed to provide control throughout the working and finishing phases of treatment, according to the product’s inventor and clinical advisor, Robert “Tito” Norris, DDS.

The bracket system, which is manufactured using MIM engineering, features a reciprocal sliding door, integral ball hooks, a unique mechanical base design, and ideal tie-wing span, according to the company.
