SmartArch is now a complete archwire solution for orthodontists

Smarter Alloys™ today announced the new SmartArch™ VariTorque archwire at the American Association of Orthodontists Annual Session in San Diego, California. VariTorque archwire brings the revolutionary force control of SmartArch technology to rectangular wires. “We’re adding another dimension of force control to SmartArch,“ said Dr. Michael Kuntz, VP Operations, “Rectangular VariTorque wires offer orthodontists the most advanced torque control available in an archwire.”

SmartArch is a revolutionary new system of orthodontic archwires that are programmed to express the biomechanically optimized force at each tooth, increasing treatment efficiency. VariTorque is the first rectangular archwire with variable torsional flex in each interbracket region for tooth-to-tooth torque control. There is no need for different wire sizes, which increase bracket slot play and reduce torque expression. With VariTorque, orthodontists achieve gentle forces where they’re needed while gaining earlier torque and rotational activations. When used following the SmartArch Universal round wire, VariTorque rectangular wires can be placed earlier in the treatement, reducing the overall time.

“SmartArch is now a complete archwire solution for orthodontists,” said Dr. Ibraheem Khan, founder and CEO of Smarter Alloys. “Today, we’re able to offer the full range of forces required for alignment, levelling, rotation and torque for every tooth in a simple two wire system.”

SmartArch is available in 10 packs for US$150. Smarter Alloys will be demonstrating the new technology at the AAO Annual Session in San Diego, California from April 22 to April 25. Visit for purchasing information.
