Looking into the Future: The Latest Orthodontics Appliances of 2016

The Latest Orthodontics Appliances of 2016Technological advancements have come to push the dental industry to greater heights and improved treatment procedures. Among these innovations are the progression of dental implantology as the best treatment procedure for edentation, and the emergence of advanced dental appliances.

In the branch of restorative dentistry, for example, there are bioactive glass fillings that last longer while repairing the damages of a tooth due to cavities and mineral loss. Meanwhile, in orthodontics, there are new appliances, such as the Cise Distalizer and Space Maintainer. The latest equipment for orthodontics serves to improve specific methods of dental treatment.

The Cise Distalizer

On June 30, 2016, the Applied Bionics and Biomechanics Volume 2016 published a research article on a new orthodontic appliance with a mini screw for upper molar distalization. The study’s aim is to present the Cise Distalizer.

Distalization is the process of changing the placement of the teeth, particularly in a posterior direction, to correct bite problems. The Cise Distalizer is an intraoral device that is supported by an orthodontic mini screw for upper permanent molar distalization. It has eight primary components that contribute to its 600 gr distalization force.

Conclusively, the Cise Distalizer is an economic and ergonomic orthodontic appliance that can provide adequate force for the upper first and second molars.

Space Maintainers

Apart from the Cise Distalizer and the orthodontic supplies market that’s apparently worth billions, space maintainers are another appliance worth mentioning. The Groper pediatric partial bridge is one appliance that helps children who no longer have their anterior teeth. Its efficiency has sparked the production of the appliance, but without the pads, which are essential for its strength and durability.

It is a given that each patient has different problems, and when it comes to orthodontics, these cases require specialized services. Mapping the gaps between the teeth, ensuring the proper fit of the mold, or providing post-treatment examinations can all take a long time if the required tools are not available. Oftentimes, working on an orthodontic problem needs customized solutions for the satisfaction of the patient. This is why these appliances have come to exist.
