BioForce also shares the properties of all Sentalloy wires and is designed to deliver a gentle, light continuous force to mitigate periodontal stress.
Unique Properties of Superelastic Wires
Body Heat Activation
At room temperature, Sentalloy wires are soft, pliable, and easy to engage. Once warmed to body temperature the wire gently and predictably guides the teeth to the present arch form.
Even when severely malposed, Sentalloy continues to exert its gentle, near constant forces as the tooth moves.
Shape Memory Effect
Sentalloy will take displacements up to 90 degrees without deforming. Its overwhelming desire to return to its original shape actually promotes tooth movement with fewer 0wire changes and fewer patient visits.
IONGUARD - IONGUARD is not a coating; it is a fundamental change in the wire’s surface. Without changing the wire’s dimensions, or altering any of the wire’s unique superelastic properties, the process produces sliding mechanics comparable to stainless steel, while sealing the occlusal surface to reduce nickel leaching and breakage.
