Bands & Crowns
Through years of research with computer-aided engineering technology, Ormco has refined the placement of all buccal tubes specific to each type of band we offer.
The benefits to you include:
- The truest expression of the geometries built into every buccal tube.
- Precision placement takes into account all the variables: band size, buccal tube dimensions and prescription.
Ormco bands can be prewelded in “standard weld position” or “custom weld position,” described and illustrated below.
Standard Weld Position
The drawings below provide an overview of the various standard positions and illustrate the attachment welded at 0° angulation to the band (the bracket slot will be parallel to the occlusal edge of the band).
Custom Weld Position
Custom assemblies are Ormco brackets and bands prewelded in other than standard position. If you need a custom placement, indicate direction and amount of change from standard (e.g., 0.5 mm more occlusal). If specifying a custom angulation, indicate a plus (+) for distal root tip or a minus (-) for mesial root tip. If no position criterion is provided on the order, it will be welded in the standard position. Custom items are not returnable.
