How It Works
The newest, fastest way to correct impacted teeth
The Old Way
The traditional method of applying orthodontic force to surgically exposed impacted teeth typically involves putting traction on a gold chain bonded to the impacted tooth, usually via elastomeric thread. The problem–this old technique is inefficient, uncomfortable, and costly. The force levels from elastomeric thread can be extremely high, causing patient discomfort and potential damage to the impacted tooth. In addition, the force level from elastomeric thread dies quickly over several days to a couple of weeks, requiring the patient to return to your office for multiple uncomfortable activations.
The New Way
The Isoglide eruption spring is completely different! It utilizes a nickel-titanium coil spring to put low, constant pressure on the impacted tooth, and, when placed correctly by the periodontist or oral surgeon, requires little to no reactivation to bring the impacted tooth into the mouth. The low, constant force of the nickel-titanium spring drastically improves the efficiency of tooth movement, bringing the impacted tooth in much faster than traditional methods. In addition, patient comfort is increased, and appointments with the orthodontist for reactivation of the spring are eliminated or drastically reduced–saving you, the orthodontist, time and money.
The Isoglide eruption spring was developed to be a faster, more efficient way to bring in impacted teeth. Because Isoglide eliminates the need for regular reactivation, you’ll save multiple appointments, reduce total treatment time, and save money.
