The crimpable hook is a commonly used tool for attaching active elements to help with orthodontic tooth movement.
They are an attachment that allows the force to be directed further towards the tooth’s center of resistance, preventing undesirable movements or anchoring loss, especially in the case of the molars.
Crimpable Hooks work with elastics, chains, and coil springs, and the length is ideal for surgical cases. For greater grip strength on the archwire, the interior is ribbed with bi-directional grips. Crimpable Hook’s mushroom top allows it to be used as a surgical hook or an arch hook.
It can assist the operator to save time, eliminate the requirement for ligature wires for attaching force systems to implant heads or lingual sheaths, and reduce the need for undesired side effects of forces.
Size: short, middle, long.
