EXPERIENCE mini metal self-ligating brackets are a new option for aesthetics and performance in metal self-ligation. The smaller version of the EXPERIENCE metal achieves patient satisfaction and the high standards orthodontists demand.
After metal (MIM) or ceramic (CIM) injection into the mold an additional step is conducted with each of our self-ligating brackets. This step involves milling each slot to guarantee its precision. The process, called CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled), is the best way to ensure an exact slot size of .018” and/or.022”. For consistent milling the milling blade is changed after every 1000 brackets. Our brackets perfectly express the programmed torque and angulation for predictable results.
The micro-sandblasted mesh base ensures superior retention.
Torque in base
Distal-gingival color ID
Clip-opening system on the buccal face
Spring-clip with two contact points; fully covering the slot
EXPERIENCE mini metal brackets feature laser identification marks on the back of the bracket to help identify the placement, specific tooth and prescription for each bracket. The markings ensure correct bracket placement and facilitate storage.
Place the rounded blade tip of opening tool onto the top surface of the clip parallel to archwire slot, until it is over a small projection on the clip and clicks into the center of the clip.
Once the blade is properly positioned, pull the blade tip toward the occlusal direction to open.
The distal-gingival color code allows an identification of the bracket to prevent bonding errors. For some prescriptions, these color codes may be different on the bicuspids.
EXPERIENCE Mini Metal is available in Roth Type and MBT Type*.
