tanzo-archwire-quoteThe manufacturing process for AO’s Tanzo Premium Heat Activated Arch Wire starts with the highest quality raw materials. American Orthodontics’ manufacturing benchmark for Tanzo focuses on maintaining consistent loading and unloading forces so the wire delivers the same predictable performance every time. Each wire is set to shape in industry standard arch forms through a proprietary heat-treating process. Each wire cross section is then thoroughly analyzed for quality and to ensure that consistent forces are produced between lots. Tanzo’s unique copper nickel-titanium material allows for the delivery of lower loading forces while maintaining consistent unloading forces for increased patient comfort. Tanzo’s copper nickel-titanium material also allows for increased resistance to permanent deformation, allowing the wires to work in the mouth for longer intervals, which may result in fewer wire changes and lower wire inventories. Each Tanzo wire then goes through a final, thorough polishing process that results in an extremely smooth finish. The process is completed with the wires being laser marked with the AO logo to help provide a clear view of the midline. The wire is then packaged in sterilizable packaging to enhance safety, eliminate cross contamination, and add to the clean clinical environment of the orthodontic office. Individual pouches or bulk packaging are available depending on customer needs.

Tanzo Premium Heat Activated Arch Wire is available in both Mid and Low Force levels, and available arch forms include Form A medium and large*, Natural Arch Form I, III, and VLP** small, medium, and large arch forms.
