GAC Ideal First Molar Bands
Users of our Ideal Bands will enjoy an edge hardness that prevents edge crushing, as well as a crown height. They are made from seamless stainless steel and are stretched minimally during contouring to assure greater strength. The interiors of all bands are etched for roughness to increase bond strength. Sized 5-38 for first molars and 1-32 for second molars, these “softer” bands provide excellent fit and stability. They are anatomically contoured for left and right, and they are marked using our patented Electro Chemical Etch process for easy-to-read permanent identification, and the interiors are acid-etched for roughness to increase bond strength. This process provides permanent band identification that withstands sterilization and will not weaken the integrity of the band nor stain nor anneal, as laser identification can.
