A Bracket Positioning Gauge is a specialized dental tool used in orthodontic procedures to accurately position brackets on the teeth.
The features of a Bracket Positioning Gauge include
- Material Bracket Positioning Gauges are typically made of high-quality stainless steel or plastic, which are durable and resist corrosion.
- Design Bracket Positioning Gauges are designed to fit around the teeth and provide a guide for accurate bracket placement. They may have a curved or angled shape that allows for better access to teeth and gums, and may also have markings or notches to help align the gauge with the teeth.
- Size Bracket Positioning Gauges are available in different sizes to accommodate different tooth shapes and sizes.
- Markings Some Bracket Positioning Gauges may have markings or notches that correspond to the size and position of orthodontic brackets, allowing for accurate placement.
Sterilization Like other dental tools, Bracket Positioning Gauges are designed to be sterilized between uses. Some models may be autoclavable, meaning they can be sterilized using high heat and pressure, while others may be designed for single use only.
