NIKODEM SPRING™

Developed by Dr. Stephen Nikodem, the Nikodem Spring™ is an ultra-thin (.010), super-elastic nickel titanium wire specially designed to create a continuous light force when activated, thus making it an effective tool for concealed, comfortable space closure.

Small segments of the Nikodem Spring™ can be placed and activated on the lingual surface (behind the tooth), creating a light continuous force to close spaces.
