Straight-Wire Synthesis

Straight-Wire Appliances are all founded in the original principles of Dr. Andrews. That means that any A+  Straight- Wire Appliance is built upon three key Andrews principles: compound bracket contours, torque-in-base and level slot lineup. These design principles are interrelated and fundamental to the requirements of any Straight-Wire Appliance. And since all Straight-Wire Appliances share these principles, they are fully interchangeable.

Straight-Wire Synthesis

Traditional Straight-Wire Features

Compound Contour for Snug Fit
Each Synthesis bracket is designed with tooth-specific contours in the base. These contours mirror the anatomy of the middle third of each tooth to ensure accurate placement and snug fit.

Torque-in-Base for Accurate Placement
With the Synthesis appliance, the center of the slot and the center of the base are always on the same plane. Torque-in-the-base ensures consistent, reliable placement and makes level slot lineup possible.

Level Slot Lineup for Less Wire Bending
With the Synthesis appliance, the slot of the bracket will always be parallel to the occlusal plane of the arch, eliminating time consuming wire bends.

Proven Enhancements

Rhomboid Design for Easier Placement
The rhomboid bracket and pad design, incorporated throughout the Synthesis System, provides numerous references for easier bracket placement. The horizontal aspects align parallel to the occlusal plane and the vertical aspects align parallel to the crown-long axis of each tooth. These visual cues make bracket placement more precise.

Optimesh®  XRT for Improved Bond Retention
Optimesh XRT is a feature in all Synthesis brackets. It’s a treated 100- gauge mesh that creates additional undercuts and is proven to increase bond strengths up to 35%.

Functionality with Aesthetics

Synthesis is specifically engineered to combine the rotational control of the Straight-Wire™ appliance with the aesthetics of the Mini-Twin™ in applicable brackets.
