Title : The current topics of digital lingual system "HARMONY"

HARMONY has developed in France in 2007. In my clinic, it has been practiced 4 years half since 2011. I will show you current topics of this system

1. Digital set up and customized wire

Almost procedures are used digital technology, dental data has transferred digital data, so we can send patient data by internet, no more use of surface or air transport. Using 3D set up, customized bracket and wires are produced. Especially rectangular full size niti wire can be realized ideal teeth alignment same as set up.

2. Handling and patient’s impression

Among key points of self ligation bracket, clip strength is thought to be important factor. Harmony clip is strong enough and hard to open by accident. If open the clip by accident during treatment, the tooth should be no control and we have to go back treatment step. It means inefficient treatment. As for patient’s impression, the shape of Harmony bracket is round form, so it is gentle to tongue, so complaint of irritation bracket was little. 

3. Treatment results

 Full size niti and customized bracket realize high quality treatment result. Recent micro implant treatment has also contributed to excellent treatment result. Let me show you such clinical cases.
