Orthodontic Tubes

Definition : Small metallic tubes designed for welding to the outside of a molar band in orthodontic treatments. These tubes typically include slots to hold arch wires, lip bumpers, facebows, and other orthodontic devices. Orthodontic (also known as buccal) tubes are used mainly in procedures intended to exert pressure on the teeth (e.g., to push teeth back to create more room for other teeth).
