Spring is here! But at our office, we often refer to a different type of “spring” year-round. The CS4000 spring is a specific type of orthodontic spring used in braces treatment. It is a coil spring made of a special nickel-titanium alloy that exhibits super elasticity and shape memory properties. The CS4000 spring is designed to apply a controlled and gentle force to move teeth within the orthodontic arch.

Here are some common purposes and functions of the CS4000 spring on braces:

  1. Space creation or closing: Like other orthodontic springs, the CS4000 spring can be used to create space between teeth or close gaps by exerting a gentle force to move teeth apart or together.
  2. Tooth movement: The CS4000 spring can assist in moving teeth in specific directions as part of the overall treatment plan to achieve proper alignment. It can help rotate, tip, or upright teeth as needed for optimal positioning.
  3. Alignment: By applying continuous and controlled forces, the CS4000 spring aids in aligning teeth within the dental arch, helping to correct various orthodontic issues such as crowding, spacing, or misalignment.
  4. Treatment efficiency: The use of the CS4000 spring allows orthodontists to make precise adjustments to the braces system, contributing to the overall efficiency of the treatment process. It enables gradual and targeted tooth movement while minimizing discomfort for the patient.
  5. Versatility: The CS4000 is designed to be versatile and compatible with various orthodontic brackets and wires, making it a widely used component in contemporary orthodontic treatment.

Overall, the CS4000 spring serves as a valuable tool in orthodontics, facilitating the desired tooth movements and contributing to the success of braces treatment in achieving a straighter and healthier smile.
