- Slingties allow you to move teeth to the wire instead of moving the wire to the teeth. This negates the reciprocal forces on the adjacent teeth. The translucent color resist straining with esthetic or stainless steel brackets. You can start cases with larger wires for faster tooth movement and less patient discomfort. The 6mm and 9mm Slingties™ can be stretched up to three times their size, with 100% return for up to eight weeks. The 3mm Slingtie is excellent for correcting rotation but can also be used as an ordinary elastomeric tie.
