ifit® Tube

ifit® is American Orthodontics' most advanced tube, delivering the ultimate combination of functionality, convenience, and patient comfort.

The ifit family offers an innovative hook orientation as the flat hook angle delivers superior patient comfort and the extreme mesial hook location simplifies engagement of elastic. The large centered mesial facilitates easy wire insertion and the distal extension provides additional hook area on ifit tubes with 10 degree rotation.

Enhanced bonding and fit are featured throughout the ifit family. The dual mechanical retention bonding pad incorporates micro-roughened 80 gauge mesh over a photo-etched foil base for exceptional bond strength. There is also a pronounced developmental groove to enhance fit and positioning accuracy.

The Horizontal placement line provides excellent reference to the desired occlusal plane and the tweezers guides allow accurate, non-slip delivery to posterior teeth. Plus, the quadrant color coding ensures accurate tooth identification.

Distinct, Modern Design

Every design detail has been considered to make ifit more comfortable for the patient, and more accurate for doctors and staff. ifit's streamlined look includes the tube being funneled mesial to distal, a scalloped mesial edge from the facial view, and a flatter hook orientation.
