Is the ControlledArch® Technique is as good as I have heard?

Can I easily integrate the ControlledArch® Technique into the system and technique that I am currently using?
Yes, integrating the ControlledArch® System into your current treatment system is amazingly easy. As an orthodontic practitioner you need to have Complete and Predictable Control during treatment. The ControlledArch® System is the innovative straight wire system employed by most orthodontic practitioners today which ensures that the movements of the teeth and bone are “Controlled”, there is long-term stability throughout and after treatment, case finishing is easier and predictable, and there is a problem-free course of treatment.
Why was the ControlledArch® System developed?
