SPEED Users Guide

20 SPEED D-Wire™ is a unique half-round, half-square wire which is ideally suited for full 3-Dimensional control while sliding. The unique D-Wire™ profile ideally cooperates with the SPEED Spring Clip to ensure precision and control during sliding mechanics even when used as a sectional. The unique shape of Preformed SPEED Wire™ archwires enhances cooperation between SPEED brackets and archwires (see illustration). Any rotation of the bracket relative to the wire, away from the relationship shown on the right, results in labial deflection of the Spring Clip and thereby storage of appropriate energy for recovery. This relentless homing action enables precise tooth positioning in all planes of space. • Facilitates wire insertion and Spring Clip closure • Saves time - almost no primary bending required • Arch form reflects in-out offsets of the SPEED appliance • Rounded edge is always directed toward the labial-gingival in either arch SPEED WIRE ™ FINISHING ARCHWIRES NICKEL TITANIUM AND STAINLESS STEEL HILLS DUAL-GEOMETRY ™ ARCHWIRES STAINLESS STEEL The HILLS Dual-Geometry™ archwire is the optimal wire for sliding mechanics and anterior retraction while maintaining nearly perfect torque control. • Square anterior portion ensures full torque control by filling the slot occluso-gingivally • Easy to engage and close the Spring Clip due to the reduced labio-lingual dimension • Perfectly round and polished posterior section minimizes friction and cooperates with the Spring Clip for optimal rotation and tip control during tooth translation • Made of ultra-high tensile strength stainless steel for optimum stiffness • Available for both the .018 slot and .022 slot in a variety of archform sizes Full sized square anterior section fills the slot for optimal torque control Round posterior section is polished to minimize friction ACTIVATED THE SPEED WIRE™ ARCHWIRE PASSIVE SPEED D-WIRE ™ ARCHWIRES NICKEL TITANIUM AND STAINLESS STEEL
