DynaFlex Launches Norris 20/26 PSL Bracket and Wire System

ST. LOUIS, Mo.—DynaFlex and Dr. Robert “Tito” Norris have launched the Norris System, including the Norris 20/26 Brackets, Norris Extra Broad Archwires and Norris Educational Platform.

Through decades of experience in treating with passive self-ligating systems, along with his background in mechanical engineering, Norris identified the advantages and the clinical shortcomings of competing self-ligating brackets. This helped in determining which design elements would most benefit today’s practicing orthodontist. The result is a true twin, passive self-ligating appliance system using a reduced slot dimension of .020 x .026, combined with an uncomplicated mechanism and simplified wire sequence of extra broad arch form wires.

To achieve superior arch development and fully expressed smiles, research has shown low-forces and less friction are ideal. It was critical to employ the free-sliding mechanics of passive self-ligation while reducing the learning curve. The Norris 20/26 Bracket System provide more control with reduced slot dimension and offers other features such as: four true tie-wings with undercuts that can accommodate ligature ties and elastic chain; Cobalt-Chromium composition for nickel-free use by allergy-sensitive patients; a door mechanism with “glided” opening and closing; universal bicuspid hooks for reduced inventory; and a mechanical base for trouble-free bonding.
“Now more than ever, orthodontists see the need for efficiency, streamlined workflow and to minimize in-office patient interaction. I am genuinely excited to have the opportunity to work with a great clinician like Dr. Norris to develop a bracket system that meets these needs.” said DynaFlex CEO and owner, Darren Buddemeyer.

As part of the Norris 20/26 Bracket System, the Norris Extra Broad archwires are the result of what Norris learned from observation and trial and error. He synthesized his experiences using broad arch forms to create the extra broad arch form. A non-coordinated arch makes it possible to treat both the upper and lower with the same form. Thirty percent broader archforms than the broadest arch on the market, this extra broad arch affords maximum space as it expresses each tooth to its full outer-most potential; teeth have a greater range of motion, making leveling and aligning easier than before; and it reduces dark posterior buccal corridors.

Because of the reduced slot and additional control, most cases can be treated with as little as four wires, minimizing the learning curve and inventory needs even further. Throughout the later working and finishing stages of treatment, a “rounded rectangular” (19x25) arch wire is introduced that enhances insertion, clip closure and seating.
