STRAIGHT TEETH – FOR A LIFETIME

Thanks to the patented CAD/CAM manufacturing process, MEMOTAIN® retainers are more precise than a handcrafted lingual retainer could ever be. It is possible to create even the smallest designs without bending the alloy. This ensures lower risk of damage or fracture of the material. Thanks to the specifically tailored transfer coping, fitting the retainer is child's play. MEMOTAIN® retainers ensure accurate positioning, especially in connection with the upper and lower jaw, and thus allow greater long-term wear comfort and reduce the risk of biting off the device. Moreover, the long-term, compliance-independent stabilisation of the position of the teeth results in fewer incidents of undesired tooth movement and consequently fewer follow-up treatment appointments. Maximum convenience for you and maximum comfort for your patients.

CLOSE-UP

CA DIGITAL's retainers are made using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) processes. Thanks to the innovative, patent-pending manufacturing process, MEMOTAIN® is made to fit and, with a thickness of 0.4 mm x 0.4 mm, is much thinner than conventional lingual retainers.

THE ADVANTAGES

HIGHER PRECISION THAN ANY HANDCRAFTED RETAINER

i

Thanks to the innovative manufacturing process, MEMOTAIN® is made to fit and, with a thickness of 0.4 mm x 0.4 mm, is much thinner than conventional lingual retainers.

HIGHLY STABLE SHAPE-MEMORY ALLOY NITINOL©

i

Once it is brought to shape, this high-grade memory alloy cannot be bent any more. The natural, physiological tooth movement is restricted as little as possible.

PERFECT FIT

i

Thanks to CAD/CAM manufacturing techniques and the use of this state-of-the-art material, it is possible to reproduce even the minutest structures. This ensures the best fit.

NO RESTRICTIONS ON PROPER ORAL HYGIENE

i

Thanks to their perfect fit and smaller bonded surfaces, MEMOTAIN® retainers are much easier to clean than conventional steel retainers.

EASY TO FIT

i

MEMOTAIN® retainers are delivered with a customised transfer jig. Fitting them is therefore quite straightforward. Maximum convenience for you and maximum comfort for your patients.

TREATMENT CASES

CASE 1

1 – CONDITION AFTER COMPLETION OF ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

When the photos were taken, the treatment plan for the patient included wearing a removable retention device for the upper jaw at night (which she definitely wanted to discontinue) and a so-called 2-point retainer for the lower jaw – to be more precise: a 0.032" wire attached to the canines. The patient did notice a minimum movement of teeth 31 and 41. The main reason for her insisting on a CAD/CAM retainer was, however, her desire for a greater comfort level.
