After measuring anterior teeth for over five years, we have crystallized a method to consistently deliver a predictable anterior display while idealizing functional coupling of anterior teeth. The Platinum Proportion™ archwire system takes the guess work out of archwire selection based on a simple system of measuring tooth width of the anteriors cuspid to cuspid. This technique definitively provides the clinician the proper archwire based on the consolidated width. Cuspids on the “Sweet Spot” Harmonious progression of gradation Platinum Proportion™ Gradation for Optimum Aesthetics Broken Gradation Canines positioned anterior to the “Sweet Spot” Small teeth and/or spacing can result in less than perfect smiles Actual Size = Cuspid “Sweet Spot” Where the Archwire “Turns the Corner” Europa™ II Archform Damon°-Compatible Trueform™ I Archform Roth°°-Compatible Actual Size Archwire Sizes Archwire Sizes 100% 92% 84% 100% 92% 84% Current TFI Upper Current EFII Upper The Platinum Proportion™ Archwires Consolidated width 3 2 1 1 2 3 indicates archform size: 40mm or Less = Customize 84% 40mm - 45mm = 92% Upper & 84% Lower 45mm - 50mm = 100% Upper & 92% Lower 50mm or More = Customize 100% Determining the proper archwire size This case displays a consolidate width of 44.8 mm, indicating consideration of archforms 92% upper and 84% lower.
