Abstract
(EN)
Self-ligating plastic braces with variable clip-on covers and manufacturing process, made of plastic or other thermoplastic materials and comprising two parts: - The base (1), which is fixed to the tooth. - The clip-on cover (2). The base has a groove to hold the arch wire (3), which is affixed using a clip-on cover. This base has a self-centring pivot that connects to a centring cavity in the clip-on cover. The clip-on covers have been designed in different shapes and sizes. They are changed throughout the course of the orthodontic treatment to replace worn clip-on covers or to change the action of the braces, from passive to active and vice versa. The clip-on covers may be transparent or pigment may be added thereto to create different coloured clip-on covers.
(ES)
Bracket de plástico autoligado con tapas-clip variables y proceso de fabricación, realizado en plástico u otros materiales termoplásticos que consta de dos partes: - La base (1), que se adhiere al diente. - La tapa-clip (2). La base tiene un surco para recibir el arco de alambre (3), que se fija mediante una tapa-clip. Esta base dispone de un pivote de autocentrado que acopla a una cavidad de centrado de la tapa-clip. Las tapas-clips se han diseñado con diferentes formas y tamaños. Estas se cambian a lo largo del tratamiento ortodóncico para reemplazar las desgastadas o modificar la acción del bracket, pasando de pasiva a activa y viceversa. Las tapas-clips pueden ser transparentes o se pueden añadir pigmentos para crear tapas-clips de diversos colores.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un bracket auto-ligaturant en plastique à couvercles encliquetables variables et sur son procédé de fabrication. Le bracket selon l'invention est réalisé en plastique ou dans d'autres matériaux thermoplastiques et comprend deux parties: une base (1) qui adhère à la dent; et un couvercle encliquetable (2). La base est munie d'une rainure destinée à recevoir l'arc métallique (3) que l'on fixe à l'aide du couvercle encliquetable. La base comprend un pivot d'autocentrage qui se couple à une cavité de centrage du couvercle encliquetable. Les couvercles encliquetables ont été conçus en différentes formes et tailles. On peut changer les couvercles encliquetables tout au long du traitement orthodontique afin de remplacer les couvercles usés ou de modifier l'action du bracket, pour que de passive elle devienne active, ou vice-versa. Les couvercles encliquetables peuvent être transparents ou on peut leur ajouter des pigments pour créer des couvercles encliquetables de différentes couleurs.
