Every day, Anicet Mbida makes us discover an innovation that could well change the way we consume.

This Friday, he is interested in the first 3D printed dental devices that allow teeth to realign two to three times faster.

This Friday morning, we innovate in orthodontics with the first 3D printed dental appliances.

Advantage: they realign the teeth two to three times faster.

They are more effective for one simple reason: their braces are custom-designed to perfectly fit the contour of the teeth.

We all have different teeth and jawbones, yet braces are the same for everyone.

This is why sometimes it hurts and we have to go back and forth to the orthodontist to have it readjusted.

From now on, we will be able to make custom-made dental appliances.

Everything will happen on the computer.

After having scanned the jaw, we will model in 3D the new alignment of teeth that we want to obtain.

Then, the system will create a unique dental appliance, by 3D printing ceramic rings perfectly adapted to the morphology.

It is a whole new technique developed by the Americans of LightForce Orthodontics.

It allows, for the first time, the industrial manufacture of custom-made dental appliances.

The realignment of the teeth will be much faster: six months on average whereas it is rather between 12 and 24 months on today's devices.

It must be very expensive.

Yes, very expensive unfortunately.

We are at the top of the basket of ceramic dental appliances (those that are invisible).

We will still save some money by reducing the number of appointments, since there will be less need for adjustment.

But as always with teeth, better to have a good mutual.
