OrthoNu® tools produce oral self-care solution designed to address common orthodontic emergencies in between visits.

New Tweakz® for Braces and Tweakz for Aligners Designed to Increase Office Efficiencies and Help Patients Between Visits

With the launch of Tweakz® for Braces and Tweakz for Aligners, OrthoNu is delivering a new category of products specifically designed to meet the needs of orthodontic patients. The Tweakz tools are described as an oral self-care solution designed to address common orthodontic emergencies in between visits.

By addressing manageable discomforts at home until the next scheduled appointment, Tweakz reduces disruptions for the practice and patients, which then translates to efficiencies and growth opportunities for the practices.

OrthoNu says the average practice experiences 8-10 emergency visits each day, with each visit costing an office around $100 on average. Broken brackets and cutting distal ends account for 99% of braces emergencies. Rough edges and removal of overly retentive trays account for 92% of aligner emergencies.

In total, these breakthrough visits can cost an office over $300,000 a year, while causing great discomfort and anxiety among patients and caregivers, according to OrthoNu.

Designed by an orthodontist, OrthoNu Tweakz 4-in-1 self-care tools are patient-friendly, professional grade, driven by science, and developed from professional tools.

"The OrthoNu line of self-care orthodontic products focuses on emergency care, oral hygiene, oral esthetics, and oral health, reducing the sizeable impact of emergency visits and elevating the patient experience," says Sima Yakoby Epstein, DMD, OrthoNu Founder and CEO. "Tweakz provides orthodontists with proper tools and solutions to meet these urgent patient needs when they occur, while helping expand patient self-care capabilities, comfort, and confidence."

  • Flush Distal End Cutter: Eliminates sharp wires by cutting and holding the cut wire piece for safety
  • Dental Pick: Removes broken or dislodged brackets with ease (self-ligating or conventional) and food interproximally between teeth and appliances
  • Rubber Band Applicator: Removes and replaces rubber bands with ease
  • Diamond Dental File: Smooths out rough spots on brackets and hooks
