2D Bracket (Forestadent)

In 1984, the 2D bracket, developed by J. Philippe, was introduced to the market. These 2D brackets consist of only a flat base and two small tabs that allow the bracket to hold round wires. The extremely simple 2D bracket is less than 2 mm thick, making it the flattest lingual bracket on the market. The 2D brackets can be bonded directly to the lingual surfaces without the need for a complex positioning process in the laboratory.

Four Types

Four different types are available: a medium twin bracket, a narrow single-wing for lower anterior teeth, a wider twin bracket and a bracket with 3 lugs for attaching elastic chains and for better control of the tooth position. Simple tubes for the molars are also available.

Forestadent’s lingual 2D brackets are mainly suitable for simple cases, especially the straightening of small deviations of the anterior teeth, as they cannot transmit torque, among other things. Due to the flat design, they should at least be good for patient comfort in suitable cases.

For small anterior treatments, 2D brackets can therefore be an inexpensive and simple alternative to more expensive products. However, their simple design requires particularly great craftsmanship on the part of the orthodontist if a good result is to be achieved: the simple design may take its revenge on the patient with a particularly large number of wire bends.

On the other hand, these simple brackets are not suitable for complex treatments with extractions, crossbites, dysgnathia surgery, etc.
