Orthodontics has come a long way since the days of traditional metal braces. Today, groundbreaking technology is transforming how we straighten teeth: BRAVA by Brius. Unlike braces or aligners, this innovative system uses Independent Mover™ technology to move each tooth independently yet simultaneously, offering a more efficient and effective solution.
How BRAVA Works
The process begins with a 3D scan of your teeth. Leveraging BRAVA’s proprietary algorithms, your orthodontist customizes the movement of each tooth to its ideal position. The system is crafted from Nickel Titanium, initially developed for NASA and used in many medical applications due to its superelastic shape memory.
The Independent Movers™ are placed on the back of the teeth, working unseen throughout the treatment. This placement not only makes the system invisible but also facilitates easier cleaning as there aren’t any wires or bands getting in the way. The application of BRAVA takes about 90 minutes, after which it applies continuous, gentle force 24/7. For most patients, no further adjustments are required, just periodic check-ins to track progress.
Effectiveness and Efficiency
BRAVA by Brius is characterized by its efficiency. It’s designed to move teeth on a direct path to each ideal position, pre-programming the precise moment and force for each tooth of each patient. This approach allows faster treatment times than traditional braces, speed braces, or even Invisalign. Most patients see initial results within three weeks; most cases can be completed in less than a year.
Comparison to Other Orthodontic Treatments
Before BRAVA, patients had two main options for straightening teeth: braces or aligners. However, these methods have their limitations. Aligners work in stages, affecting only a tiny amount of movement at a time and impacting groups of teeth together. This can lead to multiple mid-treatment corrections and longer treatment times. On the other hand, traditional braces can be aesthetically unappealing and uncomfortable.
BRAVA by Brius offers a modern solution that combines the best features of metal braces and clear aligners. It’s completely hidden behind the teeth, making it an invisible option. Moreover, no wire connects the tooth movers, so each tooth moves independently yet simultaneously, leading to more efficient treatment in fewer appointments.
Suitability for Different Cases
BRAVA by Brius is suitable for a wide range of orthodontic cases, from mild to complex. There is no limitation to what you can do with this technology. It’s also ideal for image-conscious individuals because the braces are totally invisible to onlookers. However, it’s always best to consult with an orthodontist to determine if BRAVA is the right treatment for your specific case.
Aesthetic and Comfort Benefits
One of the standout features of BRAVA by Brius is its aesthetic appeal. The system is placed on the back of the teeth, making it unseen and clinically effective. This means patients can confidently flash their smiles without anyone knowing they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Regarding comfort, BRAVA is less forceful on your teeth, leading to a less painful orthodontic experience. It’s also easier to clean because it doesn’t use wires, reducing the number of nooks and crannies to brush at. Furthermore, installation requires fewer orthodontic visits, with no adjustments required.
BRAVA by Brius is a game-changer in the field of orthodontics. Its innovative Independent Mover™ technology, aesthetic appeal, and efficiency make it a compelling choice for those seeking to straighten their teeth. As with any orthodontic treatment, it’s important to consult with us to determine if BRAVA is the right choice for you.
