Introducing Snapcaps

This new product will allow your patients to have a more enjoyable orthodontic experience.

Snapcaps are intended for use only on the maxillary incisors and only on metal brackets.

Snapcaps do not touch the arch wire, but simply engage the undercuts of the bracket wings. As a result, Snapcaps should not affect orthodontic tooth movement.

 

Snapcaps have been shown to be compatible with the metal brackets listed below, regardless of whether the arch wire is held in with single ties, elastic chain, steel ligatures or self ligation. A figure eight when using single ties tends to stretch the tie, leaving more undercut for the Snapcaps to engage.

SAFETY STOPS

A critical feature of the Snapcaps are the Safety Stops. The Safety Stops are bumps located on the inside of the upper and lower portions of the Snapcaps. They are designed to fit in between the wings of the twin brackets. 

The Safety Stops serve two important purposes. First, they keep the Snapcaps centered on the bracket. Secondly, the Safety Stops provide a mechanical interlock with the bracket, which tends to keep the Snapcaps properly positioned until the patient intentionally removes them.

 

As a result of the mechanical interlock from the Safety Stop, the Snapcaps could be in a passive state and still maintain resistance to lateral dislodging forces.

 

When the Snapcaps are placed on the brackets, you can feel the Safety Stops limiting the lateral movement. 

The majority of forces on the maxillary incisors are vertical. The Snapcaps are designed to stay on the brackets during these strong vertical forces, and to be removed by applying a much lighter lateral force.
