20/40™ Brackets

With your treatment goals in mind, we have reduced the ceramic particle size, allowing for a more rounded, smaller ceramic bracket while increasing the resistance to fracture and providing outstanding translucency.

  • Mechanical retention base improves bond strength and greatly eases the debonding process - no special adhesive or debonding tool required
  • Because material is stronger, the bracket base can be smaller
  • Smooth, hardened surface and rounded slot corners improve friction control and allow for more efficient sliding mechanics
  • Generous tie-wing undercut area makes ligation easier with less stress on bond interface resulting in fewer bond failures
  • Beveled lower anterior reduces occlusal interference and enamel wear
  • Complete twin system, with streamlined hooks available on cuspids and bicuspids, allows for interchangeable mechanics with metal bracket systems
