Dr. Monacell’s Innovation Revolutionized Self Ligating Braces

Several years ago, Dr. Monacell realized that self ligating braces could be even more efficient if a different-sized archwire was available to fit the brackets.  The archwire had to be small enough to fit in the bracket without “engaging the clip”, or forcing the bracket to accidentally open, and strong enough to work in conjunction with the In-Ovation system to move teeth into their correct position.  The accepted wire size at the time was .018” or .020”, neither of which were proficient during Phase 2 treatment.

Dr. Monacell researched and ultimately presented a solution:  a new archwire needed to be developed in size .022”. This size would fill the slot in the bracket and be strong enough to shift teeth with minimal discomfort.  It would not engage the clip and would therefore be the perfect solution to Phase 2 treatment with In-Ovation braces. Dr. Monacell presented his research to the Alpern Study Club, the manufacturing body of In-Ovation, and prototypes were created and studied.

Today, the Monacell Archwire .022” system is used exclusively with the In-Ovation self ligating braces system.  Dr. Monacell’s innovation has revolutionized the way In-Ovation is implemented as a Phase 2 product.
