We are offering two types of high quality molar bands.

Both are manufactured in Japan by Tomy® Inc

Sure-Snap molar bands

The alloy Sure-Snap is made from makes it both hard and elastic. The difference in thickness between the occlusal edge and the gingival edge makes it:

  • Resistant to the pressure of the band-pusher (occlusal edge)
  • Elastic enough to get over the contour of the teeth without any deformation (gingival edge).

With Sure-Snap, you will get a special anatomy for each type of molar, an easy-to-read permanent marking and
an electro-etched interior for unique retention.

They are available in 32 sizes for 1st molars; and in 30 sizes for 2nd molars

A-Fit molar bands

The A-Fit Band is featuring all the qualities of Sure-Snap. The difference is a higher crown height for the A-Fit Band and a larger choice of sizes in the higher numbers.

Sure-Snap bicuspid bands

Manufacturing quality is identical for these bands and for our molar bands.
Band setting is made through a rocking movement, alternating mesial and distal pressures. They are available
in three different anatomies:

  • 1st maxillary bicuspids (32 Sizes)
  • 1st mandibular bicuspids (25 Sizes)
  • 2nd mandibular bicuspids (27 Sizes)

Thanks to their easy setting, you will not hesitate any more to use them instead of brackets for severe rotations or
in case of bond failures.
