Orthoform Lo-force Thermal Copper NiTi is an ideal initial archwire choice, exhibiting the same shape memory properties as our standard Thermal NiTi, but with approximately 50% less force. Due to the lower forces, torque control can be safely addressed earlier in treatment with the use of rectangular wires.
The precise temperature transition range of 27°C - 32°C ensures the wire is soft at room temperature, and allows easy ligation before full activation occurs in the mouth. The wire reacts to the heat in a patient’s mouth and exerts a very light, continuous force as it returns to its original shape. Chilling the wire will increase its flexibility and ease engagement, improving patient comfort.
