Super Spring Aligner

The super spring aligner or upper modified spring aligner is used to correct teeth positioned lingually. The incorporated spring design puts pressure to “push” them labially.

This design incorporates a labial bow with helices to provide positive activation. Consistent forces are provided to maintain anterior alignment without the need for periodic adjustment. The flexible body construction assures
constant arch integrity.


Treatment & Care

The standard Upper Spring Aligner design is constructed with .030 canine to canine “Hawley” labial bow with .028 ball clasp on the first molars. Four-week appointment intervals are recommended. At each appointment, appliance fit should be evaluated, and orthodontic correction monitored. Interproximal reduction, as well as appliance adjustment, may be necessary. Patients should wear 22 hours a day and clean daily with toothpaste to prevent the buildup of plaque and
odor. Avoid Efferdent and other effervescent solutions, as it may erode components on the appliance.
