Orthoquest C+ Retainer Material Coping Plates:
Type C+ plastic appears cloudy in sheet form, but when exposed to heat during thermoforming, it becomes clear.
There are many Retainer Materials, but no plastic on the market combines the features of clarity, aesthetics, resistance to wear, cracking, splitting or abrasion, and formability that are inherent in Orthoquest C+ plastic.
That retainer plastic forms holds the teeth in position after surgery or any method of realigning teeth. Once a phase of orthodontic treatment has been completed to straighten teeth, there remains a lifelong risk of relapse (a tendency for teeth to return to their original position) due to a number of factors: recoil of periodontal fibres, pressure from surrounding soft tissues, the occlusion and patient’s continued growth and development. By using retainers to hold the teeth in their new position for a length of time, the surrounding periodontal fibres is allowed to adapt to changes in the bone which can help minimize any changes to the final tooth position after the completion of orthodontic treatment.
Outstanding patient acceptance
Will not crack or bubble, with wear resistance no other plastic can match
Excellent thermoforming properties to ensure a snap-in fit
Vacuum forming is a simplified version of thermoforming, whereby a sheet of plastic is heated to a forming temperature, stretched onto a single-surface mold, and forced against the mold by a vacuum is formed into permanent objects such as turnpike signs and protective covers. Normally draft angles are present in the design of the mold (a recommended minimum of 3°) to ease removal of the formed plastic part from the mold.
Relatively deep parts can be formed if the formable sheet is mechanically or pneumatically stretched prior to bringing it into contact with the mold surface and applying vacuum.
Suitable materials for use in vacuum forming are conventionally thermoplastics. The most common and easiest to use thermoplastic is high impact polystyrene sheeting (HIPS). This is molded around a wood, structural foam or cast or machined aluminium mold, and can form to almost any shape. Vacuum forming is also appropriate for transparent materials such as acrylic, which are widely used in applications for aerospace such as passenger cabin window canopies for military fixed wing aircraft and compartments for rotary wing aircraft. Vacuum forming is often used in low-level technology classes for an easy way to mold.
