For patients seeking a retainer that balances the finest in esthetics with long-term durability, ASTICS® provides a sleek, clear-wire solution. Constructed from transparent polymer wire, ASTICS allows patients to smile freely without the worry of unsightly metal that most retention wires present. With superb strength, reliability and resistance to stains, ASTICS retains its structural integrity and esthetics through many years of use. ASTICS is easily adjusted for a custom fit, and its labial wire is gentle and nonabrasive, ensuring comfort and preventing damage to the anterior teeth. Strong, dependable and virtually invisible, patients can rely on ASTICS for a confident and flawless smile.
With each ASTICS Clear-Wire retainer you prescribe, we will digitally scan your patient's model and store the 3-D digital data for 30 years. When a patient's retainer is lost or damaged, a replacement retainer can be reordered from the patient's digitally stored data via a faxed or e-mailed prescription. This service eliminates the need to retake impressions, freeing the patient from having to make a return office visit.
Scan and Save Model Work Service
With our new “scan and save” option, the models for your next bite splint or retainer case can be scanned, stored and duplicated for future use. For a small fee, we digitally save your master model data for 30 years, allowing replacement appliances to be prescribed at a moment's notice while eliminating the need to recall a patient for new impressions. If you ever wish to reorder the same device, this service enables our laboratory to simply print your digitally scanned model for an additional fee in order to refabricate the device.
