Editor’s intro: The Carriere® SLX 3D™ Appliance system achieves high standards for patient comfort, esthetics, and control. Read all about the most comprehensive and technologically advanced PSL treatment solution that HSO ever designed.
Now with all-new, innovative archwires and standardized sequencing protocols
The Carriere® SLX 3D™ Appliance system, when powered by the SAGITTAL FIRST™ Philosophy, is the most comprehensive and technologically advanced PSL treatment solution we’ve ever designed. Engineered to address all case types, the system offers efficient, no-compromise finishes with the superior esthetics patients value today.
The core of the system is the uniquely redesigned, feature-rich SLX 3D Self-Ligating Brackets — metal and ceramic. The highly acclaimed engineers of Henry Schein® Orthodontics™ collaborated with world-renowned orthodontists to ensure its development and met the highest standards for patient comfort, esthetics, and clinical control.
Completing the system are self-ligating buccal tubes, easy-to-use instruments, and intuitive packaging, and now a revolutionary new series of archwires with standardized sequencing protocols for accelerated treatment. In addition to the notable features highlighted here, the SLX 3D boasts full metal/ceramic bracket compatibility with brackets sized appropriately for each tooth. The cross-hair color coding offers a new level of visual cues for precise bracket placement, and the compound-contoured bases just fit right. Bracket base edges are beveled for quick, clean removal, and intelligent numbering makes ordering and inventory control a breeze.
Integral to the Carriere approach is the paradigm-shifting SAGITTAL FIRST philosophy. Carriere Motion 3D™ Appliances power sagittal movement prior to bonding brackets, eliminating competing force vectors and minimizing patient compliance issues inherent in traditional Class II and Class III correction.
Rounding out the system are the new, revolutionary Carriere M-Series™ Archwires and wire sequencing protocols — just three wires for metal brackets — designed to standardize and simplify archwire progression. The M-Series Wires have been engineered in tandem with the SLX 3D Brackets to fit the shape of the bracket slot accurately and precisely. The goal is to consistently achieve total treatment times of 12 months or less.
