Setting new standards for low friction
TP Orthodontics’ Nu-Edge® Brackets set the standard for all metal brackets by providing the following:
- Reduced friction – Using CoCr provides increased surface hardness, reducing friction forces, which are influenced by surface roughness and hardness. CoCr also prevents archwire slot collapse due to occlusal stress.
- Cast vs. machined – Nu-Edge® Brackets are cast rather than machined or milled. This produces an exceptionally smooth, precise archwire slot that further enhances the low-friction properties.
- Nickel free – Nu-Edge® Brackets are 99.9% nickel-free for sensitive patients, giving you a worry-free, biocompatible treatment option for your nickel-sensitive patients.
- Corrosion resistant – The CoCr alloy is naturally moisture-resistant.
