Introducing SmartArch™, designed to allow clinicians to move into a finishing wire after just two archwires. The patented laser treatment programs SmartArch to deliver the ideal force to each tooth.


The Science Behind SmartArch

A patented, pulsating laser programs SmartArch to deliver forces closely matching Drs. Viecilli and Burstone’s established ideals. By applying ideal forces SmartArch promotes efficient tooth movement and may reduce overall treatment time.

Fewer Wire Changes Ideal Force for Each Tooth.

Efficient Molar Engagement

Designed to engage molars with the 1st archwire and provide more efficient molar alignment.

7 Distinct Force Zones

Programmed to deliver the ideal force to each individual tooth and equalize pressure along the PDL.

Reduced Friction

Laser processing reduces friction between wire and bracket surfaces, promoting overall treatment efficiency.

Less Wire Disengagement

Increased posterior stiffness designed to reduce likelihood of disengagement from buccal tubes and may reduce associated emergency appointments.

Computer Engineered

Engineered using finite-element-analysis, the SmartArch design accounts for variations in inter-bracket distance, root size, and the root-to-crown relationship.


Drs. Viecilli and Burstone’s Ideal Forces

Drs. Viecilli and Burstone utilized Finite-Element-Analysis (FEA) to establish the ideal force load for each individual tooth.

Clinical Studies

SmartArch: A New Paradigm in Orthodontics

The new paradigm in orthodontics is an emphasis on precise bracket positioning to enable simultaneous 3D alignment of both arches with the 2-Step S-A sequence.
—By Drs. Eugene Roberts, Jeffrey Roberts, Stephen Tracey, David Sarver, Journal of Digital Orthodontics November 2019

Based on recent clinical studies by Dr. W. Roberts et al, SmartArch is significantly more efficient than conventional CuNiTi archwires. With precise bracket positioning, SmartArch’s 2-step sequence enables the simultaneous 3D alignment of BOTH arches, helping to:

  • Reduce excessive treatment time due to PDL necrosis from frequent rewiring
  • Decrease chair-time, improve outcomes, and decrease treatment time at least 50%**

Success Stories

Dr. Chris Cosse: Why I Enjoy These Wires*

Treatment Efficiency

“SmartArch allows us to use a wire that places optimal forces on the molars and the incisors at the same time. This allows for earlier posterior broadening and leveling than we are used to seeing in these early archwire stages.”

Better Patient Experience

“This not only creates more efficiency for my practice, but also less discomfort for my patient because the force values are ideal for each tooth. Think about that: less discomfort with faster movement.”

Practice Efficiency

“When you start adding up these perks over hundreds of patients, the benefits for the office as a whole are exponential. To me, one of the most exciting aspects of SmartArch is the realization that there is nothing additive to treatment that we need to build in—it’s all in the wire, and we’ve been using wires since day one.”

SmartArch Multi-Force Superelastic Archwires: A New Paradigm in Orthodontic Treatment Efficiency

The conventional wire progression—stepping through multiple rounds of progressively greater size and force—results in forces that overpower some teeth and underpower others. The value of this new wire technology lies in its capacity to apply physiologically appropriate forces to each individual tooth, thereby minimizing the formation of avascular necrotic tissue and shortening the lag phase. In each case shown here, SmartArch treatment appeared to minimize the lag phase, making coordinated tooth movement more efficient and leading to an estimated 50% savings in leveling and alignment time.

Drs. Sarver and Roberts*

12-Year-Old Patient with Class II Deep Bite Malocclusion

The significant observation in her case is how efficiently the bite was opened in 90 days with one continuous archwire. Smart-Arch delivered gentle and continuous forces that were preferred for optimal tooth movement and patient comfort.

12-Year-Old Patient with Severe Crowding

Significant changes had occurred 180 days after initial archwire placement and two archwires (Figures 11 and 12).
