Fiber-reinforced polymer composites have been used as arch wires
for more than a decade.
Spire Biomedical, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Spire Corporation (Nasdaq:SPIR) and a provider of surface treatment services for implantable medical devices, announced on Tuesday that the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), has awarded Spire a nine-month Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I Grant of USD114,173, to develop coatings for dental arch wires
used in orthodontics.
Active interaction  is the term used for the system where the seating forces on round arch wire
Orthodontists, or dentists who specialize in straightening teeth, often use stainless steel for the arch wire
At the start of each test, a trial run was performed with no load on the power arm to check that bracket was not binding on the arch wire
Patients were asked to complete a Visual Analog Scale (VAS) Questionnaire, at 24 hours after arch wire
insertion, then at 24 hours, and 7th day.

d) Provision by the arch wire
of sufficient stiffness to resist deformation by the forces applied to it as the canine is extruded.
By adjusting the ceramic/polymer proportions, these wires can be manufactured in a wide range of clinically relevant levels of elastic stiffness, allowing practitioners to use variable-modulus orthodontic techniques without having to change arch wire
materials as treatment progresses.
