Stealth Bracket (American Orthodontics)

The Stealth-Bracket is a second generation lingual brace from American Orthodontics. The Stealth is a very simply-constructed brace which makes it difficult to achieve rotation or torque without any additional aids. So it has an extra vertical slot that allows for different mechanical aids to be inserted.

However, this means that the advantages of a simple construction are then lost. For this reason the Stealth-Bracket is only really suitable for the correction of small to medium deviations of the front teeth.

Since the Stealth-Bracket is not yet being widely used, very few cases involving treatment with this brace have been published. So, at present, it is not possible to be any more specific in terms of its advantages and disadvantages.
