In order to a smooth alignment and levelling phase, besides the latest generation wires, it is necessary to develop brackets with intrinsic design superior to the current ones. Certainly, in the near future, we will have brackets of high performance, able to abbreviate phases of the orthodontic treatment. This is the major challenge. It is believed that, soon brackets capable of effectively performing the rotation movement with overcorrection, in addition to other versatilities, will be available to the orthodontic community. All that in conventional and self-ligating braces of small dimensions. Angle went so far as to say that his edgewise device would be the last and the best. It is believed that, in the middle of the 21st century, conventional bracket can receive important improvements, mainly in the sense of shortening the alignment and levelling phase. Thus, in a partnership with the Company Id-logical, we developed a new bracket – PERFORMANCE – with internal characteristics that provide significant clinical possibilities for all phases of an orthodontic treatment. The improvements are unprecedented, making this support offer a list of more than a dozen new versatilities that can shorten the duration of treatment as well as make it simpler. A Utility Patent application under number 20.2017.000785.0 was filed with the INPI in order to safeguard the modifications introduced into the Bracanic bracket (Fig. 01).
