Crimpable Ball Hook
Precision manufactured split crimp able ball hooks offer reliable performance during treatment when elastics or extension springs are needed. Also provides an effective alternative to pre posted arch wires. The ball hook may be crimped without removing the arch wire. Ball hook is straight and measures 5mm from base to ball. The straight hook may be bent in any direction. Fits rund and rectangular wire sizes up to .021″x.028″.
Crimpable Split Stop Strips
Offering convenient, secure stops that can be placed anywhere along the arch wire, crimp able split stops limit tooth movement and maintain proper wire positioning. Made of 304 annealed stainless steel, split stops crimp easily, yet hold firmly to the arch wire. Ten stops are provided on each strip. Fits round and rectangular sizes up to .021″x.028″.
Limiting tooth movement or providing anchorage, Micro Stops slide along the arch wire to the desired position and are crimped. The small size benefits patients because of their comfort and esthetics. Available in two sizes selected based on the size of the arch wire.
Small Micro Stops fit arch wires up to .018″ round or .016″ x .016″. Large Micro Stops fit arch wires larger than .018″ round or .016″ x .016″.
