Staying Power: How Sandblasted Orthodontic Metal Bracket Bases Increase Retention To Teeth

Introduction

Orthodontic treatment has had many advances in recent years, with significant improvements in technology and materials. One significant innovation that has gained traction in the field of orthodontics is the sandblasted (micro-etched) metal bracket base. Having this feature built into all of Ortho Shop’s metal orthodontic brackets significantly increases their retention to teeth.



The Basics and Benefits of Sandblasted Bracket Bases:

Sandblasting is a process that involves propelling small, abrasive particles at high velocity to roughen the surface of the metal bracket base. This controlled abrasion creates a micro-etched texture on the bracket base, which significantly enhances the bracket’s adhesive properties through this specialized surface treatment. The result is a more secure bond between the bracket and the tooth, which minimizes the risk of brackets detaching during treatment and thus fewer re-bond appointments.

Conclusion

The effectiveness of sandblasted orthodontic metal bracket bases is a testament to the continuous evolution of orthodontic technology. These precision-crafted bases offer improved bond strength, which contributes to successful and efficient orthodontic treatment.

All Ortho Shop’s brackets have this innovative sandblasting feature for the same price as other suppliers' brackets that do not have this added feature. We therefore believe that our brackets, such as the Mini Maxx S Twin Brackets, the Lucchesi Sub-Slot Twin Brackets, and the ICON Self-Ligating Brackets bring added value to our customers.
