The Optimal Force Bracket System from OrthoQuest is a multi-force bracket that allows you to begin torqueing teeth on day one with very low force and finish a case in half the time as with standard twin or self-ligating brackets. Optimal Force brackets have three* incisal tie wings and a gingival pendulum allowing for better control and management of progression of force through treatment by changing the way the wire is ligated in the slot. All brackets have a ball hook on the gingival tip, a beveled slot for increased inter-bracket distance, a centered scribe line for accurate alignment, and torque in base to magnify force and reduce friction. Bracket base is micro-etched to improve bond strength for maximum retention. Brackets are low profile for exceptional patient comfort. Offered in Roth script with an .022 slot.

The triangular shape of the Optimal Force bracket
makes it very easy to place with three reference points.
Optimal Force cuspid brackets are offered with power hooks for
increased efficiency in closing spaces and retracting anterior teeth.
Variable force ligation for control of friction and speed of treatment

Recommended wires: We recommend starting with Vision Thermal-Flex™ Multi-Force heat activated Niti wires with a dimple. The varying forces in the three segments of the wire combined with varying force levels in ligation allow for better control of the entire arch. A 20x20 wire will begin torqueing immediately, and can be used as the first wire. CuTanium™ copper NiTi will also work well with the Optimal Force brackets since ligating controls the friction. When torqueing, leveling and aligning are complete, move to a Stainless Steel wire.
