Incognito Lite Hidden Braces

3M, Monrovia, Calif, has launched Incognito™ Lite Hidden Braces, a new lingual system. Incognito Lite is designed to realign the “social six” teeth and to be used as a treatment method for mild to moderate misalignment cases that do not require the full Incognito Hidden Braces System. The lingual bracket system, which has received the international design prize, The Red Dot Award: Product Design 2012, uses the same technology as the original Incognito Hidden Braces, featuring customized brackets and robotically bent wires. Incognito Lite Braces, however, require fewer brackets and only three preselected archwires. Incognito Lite Braces are also the first Incognito Braces product that can be digitally set up using proprietary software.

Empower Clear Braces

American Orthodontics, Sheboygan, Wis, has added Empower Clear Braces to its Empower® self-ligating brackets line.

The mechanical lock base incorporates alumina particles only on the base’s center, giving a strong bond in the center and a weaker bond on the edge to facilitate debonding.
