The Elation™ MB bracket design is made from reinforced polycarbonate. It is durable and has a high-quality mechanical base (MB). This base has been proven reliably effective in both bonding and de-bonding procedures, and eliminates the need for a plastic bonding primer.
The body of the Elation™ MB bracket is reinforced with a metal insert which is barely visible when an archwire is seated in the slot. This insert flows around the archwire and is designed to reduce friction as it only contacts the wire at four small points at the polymeric wall. The insert also strengthens the whole bracket and helps to translate torque through the bracket base.
