Esthetic Bracket


InVu ceramic brackets' exclusive Personalized Color-Matching Technology allows the brackets to absorb certain wavelengths of light and thus blend with the color of individual teeth for improved esthetics, according to the manufacturer. The patented polymer mesh base is designed for easy, non-destructive debonding; deep tie wings provide various ligation options.

Specialty Mouth Mirror


The disposable Mirro-Vac Saliva Ejector Mirror features a built-in evacuation system designed to help maintain a dry field while retracting tissues and providing good visibility for bonding, sealant application, and similar procedures. Four suction inlets prevent tissue grabbing and ensure that the mirror remains fog-free, according to the manufacturer. The standard size 4 mirrors are packaged in bags of 50.
