Ixion™ Lingual Instruments

Ixion™ Lingual Instruments

This range of Ixion™ Lingual Instruments has been specifcally developed to facilitate the ‘art’ of Lingual Orthodontics.

 

We consulted leading lingual orthodontists to produce a range of instruments which fully meet the needs of this challenging technique.

 

With these factors in mind we have developed a range of instruments with longer handles for the difcult to reach areas, the heads of the instruments are smaller to accommodate the lack of interproximal space and all instruments have the unique Ixion™ smooth contours for added patient comfort

Slim Tweed Plier-01.jpg

ix949

Slim Tweed Plier

This instrument has slimmer tips - just 0.9mm - than the ix871 which means that it is ideal for use in the lingual technique.

Lingual Anterior Debonding Plier-01.jpg

ix960

Lingual Anterior Debonding Plier

Specifcally designed to enable the clinician to easily debond lingual brackets including those with a customised base.

The bracket is successfully debonded by placing the sharp edges of the metal arms between the adhesive and enamel interface. The handles are slowly closed so that a peeling action of the bracket base from the gingival towards the incisal edge completes the safe and successful debond.

The sharp edges of the metal arms are manufactured from a special hardened steel which gives long lasting sharpness.

The double-sided head of the instrument has been specially designed to enable intra-oral steps to be created, even interproximally between lingual brackets where the space is often very limited.

For use with wire up to .018” x .018” (.46 x .46mm).

ix976
Intra Oral Detailing Plier 0.5mm Step

Same features as the ix975 but with a smaller head, designed to create .020” (.5mm) frst and second order bends intra orally.
