BiolinerTM System developed by Five Star Orthodontic Lab and Supply, is your solution for correcting minor to moderate rotation or spacing with aesthetic aligners. The key is our unique soft EVA insert that gently moves teeth up to 1 ½ mm per aligner compared to ¼ mm from similar systems! No more worrying about battling those pesky lower anterior and upper lateral rotations, our soft insert knocks them out! What makes the BiolinerTM so unique?
The Power of Thermal Silicone!
The unique thermal silicone insert makes the teeth more mobile and the trays more flexible. This allows tooth movement up to 1½ mm per series and gives you the confidence that the tray is going to fit. Five Star also gives you the option of paying as you go. You can order one series at a time or as many series as needed to finish the case. This allows you to prevent the loss of unused trays from an uncooperative patient. The Plus (B) tray can also be worn as a retainer at the end of treatment. More Convenient, Less Expensive! No need for an extra retainer
How do I start my case?
Once Five Star has received the models, the teeth will be reset to an ideal arch with our OrthoAnalyzer software, then 3D printed. The BiolinerTM trays will be fabricated using those ultra accurate printed models.
What do I get back with my case?
Your trays will be fabricated upon doctor approval within 5 business days of arrival at the lab. Five Star will send you the BiolinerTM trays along with a Tooth Movement Report and an IPR guide with each case. We also send Chewies with each case to help speed treatment.
Week 1 Delivery of the BiolinerTM (A) tray. What to do after 1 month: The A tray is designed to not seat fully at initial delivery. BiolinerTM work best when the anterior of the tray is allowed to “pulse”. The pulsing action creates the mobility that makes the BiolinerTM so uniquely efficient. If you would like more retention, you can use the BiolinerTM Retention Dimple Plier to place a 1 mm dimple in the tray gingival to the height of contour of the 1st molars.
Week 3 Delivery of the Plus (B) tray. Deliver next A tray- If you ordered several series of BiolinerTM trays, deliver the next A tray once the patient has worn the first B tray for 2 weeks. Call for new trays- If you only ordered one series of trays and the patient still needs more movement, simply call or email with instructions for the next set of trays. Special requests are welcome. Continue to wear B tray as a retainer- Once the case is finished, the B tray can be worn as a final retainer. Place a Re-activation Dimple in the B tray- If a tooth has not moved to the intended reset position, use the BiolinerTM Re-activation Dimple plier to place a ½ mm dimple in the tray on any tooth where more movement is desired. After the A tray has been worn for 2 weeks, the (B) tray should be worn for an additional 2 weeks. If you need more retention, place the same retention dimple you placed on the A tray.
Can the BiolinerTM be used as a permanent retainer?
Upon finishing the case, the Plus may then be used as a final retainer further reducing lab fees. The Plus retainer will last up to two years. A regular Hawley or Spring Hawley is recommended for final retention. What kind of impression? The impression material should be PVS. Alginate is fine as long as the model is poured directly after impression is taken. All models should be free of bubbles, distortions or voids. Please check the models before sending them to Five Star Ortho.
