Bands and Attachments

Maximum Retention™ Bands

All Maximum Retention bands have an etched interior that virtually eliminates loose bands and permanent laser marked sizing for easy sorting and identification.

MR1

  • Medium contour, medium-high tooth cover-age for adaptability to many crown shapes
  • Medium Stiff temper, strong material well suited for use with welded, higher-force appliances
  • 1 1/2 - 13 or 1-32 sizing


MR2

  • Highly contoured, low coverage band for excellent fit and ease of banding shorter clinical crowns
  • Medium temper, slightly thinner material for easy adaptability to crown. Well suited for use with welded, lower-force appliances
  • 1-32 sizing


MRX

  • Exceptional contouring for accurate fit with reduced need for adaptation
  • Increased gingival festooning for better fit and patient comfort
  • Highly resilient band temper maximimzes spring-back during fitting for excellent adaptation and fit to the crown
  • Strong material well suited for use with weld-ed, higher-force appliances
  • Etched interior provides strong band retention
  • 1-32 sizing


Rollo® Band

American Orthodontics' Rollo Band is designed to provide the versatility of a band with the anchorage strength of a crown. Rollo Bands can be used in any situation where banding is indicated, or when extra strength is needed for appliances.

Like a band
  • Ten sizes per quadrant, twice the number of sizes available in conventional crowns, for improved placement and fit
  • Occlusal opening for easy removal
  • Occlusal opening for more effective light-curing of band cement

Like a crown
  • Occlusal rollover to provide integrity and strength
  • .007 material thickness to stand up to heavy anchorage forces

Product Features

feat bands retn

Maximum Retention

Retentive strength and the band-cement interface are the two most critical factors when cementing bands. The data clearly demonstrates the superior performance of Maximum Retention bands versus bands formed from non MR material.

feat bands edges

Rolled Occlusal and Gingival Edges

Provides greater edge strength during seating and increased cement retention.

feat bands etch

Laser Etched Sizing

Clear and permanent etching indicates size and quadrant.

feat bands grad

Graduation

Fully graduated: As a band's circumference increases, so does occlusal-gingival height, maintaining maximum tooth coverage for each band size.

feat bands sizing

Sizing

Circumferences increase in closely spaced intervals allowing ease and accuracy of banding fitting.

Key Features

  • Photo Etched Material - MR Bands feature photo-etched pockets or a chemically-roughened interior for dramatically increased band retention
  • Bright Mirror Finish - Smooth finish for improved hygiene
  • Temper - Each band series receives the proper amount of annealing to achieve desired stiffness
  • Reduced Interproximal Heights - Results in less tissue impingement and less gapping at the gingival margins
