In 2014, Innobrace introduces the revolutionary Epsilon non-ligating bracket (NLB) series onto the market - a new orthodontic device, developed in collaboration with Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTECH) - a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR).
Epsilon NLB is a one piece Roth-Type bracket utilising a highly flexible arch wall engagement system, thereby securing the arch wire without the need to engage/disengage metal clips or affix elastomeric devices, making this innovation truly one of its kind and the 1st non-ligating bracket system in the world.
Epsilon NLB has been shown to cut chair time by up to 50% and total treatment duration by more than 33% - key to these ground breaking results has been the design vision of the Innobrace team. In collaboration with SIMTECH, the team has identified a special titanium alloy to produce NLB. This is an illustration of a successful implementation of a medical device with the apex of material science & process engineering, something that is sure to bring a smile to both patients and orthodontic professionals and at an affordable cost too.
Something that is in line with our goals when taking that first step of this thrilling journey.
Benefits of Epsilon NLB:
* No elastomeric needed - reduced bacterial plague and no spontaneous dislodgement.
* Bi-monthly instead of monthly maintenance visits
* Shorter treatment time
* More even torque & correctional force
* Up to 50% reduction in Chair time
* Lesser pain for patients due to gentler and consistent forces.
