OPAL Micro Stops
Limiting tooth movement or providing anchorage, Micro Stops slide along the arch wire to the desired position and are crimped with a Weingart, cutter, or crimping instrument. The small size of Micro Stops benefits the patient because of their comfort and esthetics. Available in two sizes, which are selected based on the size of the arch wire. Small Micro Stops fit arch wires up to .018ʺ round or .016ʺ x .016ʺ. Large Micro Stops fit arch wires larger than .018ʺ round or .016ʺ x .016ʺ.
