Subject: Re: MRIs and fixed orthodontic appliances

In reply to the question on MRI exposure to a patient with fixed appliances. I have had experience with one case only. The radiology department requested that I send them a sample of the archwire and band material used, they evaluated and reported back that these materials were compatible with the MRI procedure and would not be a contra indication.

Hope this is of some help.

Hi Dick,

Why do you say to chill Type C after forming?  Does not the air blown or drawn over the model by the pressure or vacuum machine cool the material?

I agree, Type C is excellent.  Have you tried the later materials?
