Title (EN) HYBRID ORTHODONTIC ARCHWIRES
(FR) ARCS ORTHODONTIQUES HYBRIDES
Abstract:
(EN) Hybrid orthodontic archwire designs are disclosed. Hybrid archwires may have bracket- archwire sections and interproximal archwire sections in which each section can vary in cross-section shape, size, and/or material properties. Bracket-archwire sections may be configured to promote torque control and may have rectangular cross-sections. Interproximal archwire sections may be configured to be bent into force-promoting loops and may have round cross sections. Each archwire section may be straight or bent into any shape. Hybrid archwires may have sliding sections and non-sliding sections. Non-sliding sections may have male connectors configured to prevent the archwire from sliding relative to the orthodontic brackets and/or may have cross-sectional shapes, sizes, or coatings that resist sliding relative to sliding sections. Sliding sections may have linear archwire segments. Hybrid archwires may have distal or posterior non-sliding sections and an intermediate anterior or medial sliding section.
(FR) L'invention concerne des modèles d'arcs orthodontiques hybrides. Des arcs dentaires hybrides peuvent comporter des sections bague-arc dentaire et des sections arc dentaire interproximales dans lesquelles chaque section peut varier en termes de section transversale, de taille et/ou de propriétés des matériaux. Des sections bague-arc dentaire peuvent être conçues pour favoriser la régulation du couple et peuvent avoir des sections transversales rectangulaires. Des sections d'arc dentaire interproximales peuvent être conçues pour être recourbées en forme de boucles pour plus de force et peuvent avoir des sections transversales rondes. Chaque section d'arc dentaire peut être rectiligne ou recourbée en une forme quelconque. Des arcs dentaires hybrides peuvent présenter des sections coulissantes et des sections non coulissantes. Des sections non coulissantes peuvent avoir des connecteurs mâles conçus pour empêcher l'arc dentaire de glisser par rapport aux bagues orthodontiques et/ou peuvent présenter des formes de section transversale, des tailles ou des revêtements qui résistent au coulissement par rapport à des sections coulissantes. Des sections coulissantes peuvent comporter des segments d'arc dentaire rectilignes. Des arcs dentaires hybrides peuvent comporter des sections non coulissantes distales ou postérieures et une section coulissante antérieure ou médiane intermédiaire.
