Silkon Plus™ Brackets

Certain plastics may be strengthened by the addition of a filler. American Orthodontics, through extensive testing, has formulated a plastic/filler combination that increases the strength of Silkon Plus brackets by 30%. Silkon Plus brackets are injection molded and feature a reliable mechanical lock base. Silkon Plus offers a unique cosmetic bracket value with superior strength and arch wire slot stability.

  • Non-porous surface for improved friction control and sliding mechanics
  • Smooth, stain resistant surface means better patient acceptance
  • Plastic material does not promote enamel abrasion
