EUROTHERM THERMALLY ACTIVE NICKEL TITANIUM ARCHWIRES (PK10)
Body heat activated for easier engagement, performance, and patient comfort. Eurotherm archwires have an austenitic start temperature of approximately 19oC and an austenitic finish temperature of approximately 27oC. In layman's terms, the archwire is pliable and deforms easily out of the mouth - making insertion much easier. At mouth temperature it becomes Super-Elastic providing gentle continuous forces.
As Eurotherm arches have approximately 25% less force than the same cross-sectional size in super-elastic wires, it is possible to use rectangular wires much earlier in treatment.
Easy ligation even with severe malocclusions
Lighter force allows earlier use of rectangular wires
Ideal with pre-torqued brackets
Greater working range than super elastic wires
Gradual force reduces patient discomfort
Ideal initial wire for bracket alignment, impacted canines, and pulling down high cuspids
