The ball clasp works well on children that have no or very little undercuts. This clasp sometimes can interfere with the occlusal as it crosses over the occlusal.
This clasp is similar to a ball clasp.
This clasping follows the gingival margin sometimes it starts from the mesial of the tooth to be clasped, but most commonly it enters from the distal and ends at the mesial interproximal. This clasp is an excellent clasp for permanent teeth, when used from the distal of the last molar because of no wire over the occlusal to interfere with the bite.
To provide optimal retention when buccal undercuts are evident.
A great clasp to use in mixed dentition with lack of undercuts.
Keeps the lower retainer from sliding down onto the tissue and helps reinforce the lingual portion of the retainer.
Used to move a tooth facially, the open-ended part of the spring can be used to move the tooth further on the mesial or distal facially.
Z SPRING WITH HELICAL COIL
Same as a Z spring, but the helical coils provide far more force.
FINGER SPRING WITH HELICAL COIL
This is the same as a finger spring, but with a helical to provide more force.
The finger spring can move a tooth either mesial or distally.
FINGER SPRING WITH POSTERIOR HELICAL COIL
Same as a finger spring but is used in the molar area to move mesial as well as distal.
Used to close spaces.
HAWLEY 3 X 3 FLAT WIRE BOW
The flat bow helps keep the wire from moving up or down and can eliminate keeper wires. This bow can also be used with recurve loops placed to Doctor specifications.
