Having an attractive smile is important to most people. Crooked and misaligned teeth can be a great source of embarrassment and social discomfort. When the only alternative to crooked teeth is spending years wearing unattractive “traditional” metal braces, it can be hard to decide what to do. Fortunately, the Brius Technologies Lingual Braces System provides a third alternative: invisible lingual braces.

The Brius Technologies system is designed to work in faster than traditional braces. All the teeth are realigned using independently and simultaneously-moving wire arms. The design of each individual arm is customized to produce the optimal force and movement needed for that particular tooth.

How can Brius Technologies benefit me?

In addition to being quick and invisible, Brius Technologies are at the forefront of technology. The arch wire (the wire connecting the brace brackets) requires minimal replacement, and that means fewer orthodontic visits. Brius Technologies are ideal for patients who travel a lot or have busy lives which may prevent them from coming more frequently to the orthodontic office. Furthermore, the design of the wire allows the patient to floss as if they did not have braces on.

Here are some advantages associated with Brius Technologies:

  • Complete treatment is shorter than braces or aligners.
  • Excellent results for patients.
  • Excellent esthetics/invisible treatment.
  • Reduced plaque buildup due to decreased treatment time and ability to floss normally.
  • Requires fewer dental visits.

How are Brius Technologies fitted?

Initially, there is a short planning phase, where Dr. Castillo takes 3D X-rays to determine how the teeth need to be moved.

Once a plan has been devised, customized brackets are bonded to the tongue side of each of the teeth. Each wire arm is engaged to a tooth. Because each wire arm is independently programmed to move the teeth to the ideal position, treatment is more efficient and minimal adjustments are needed.

The placement process is performed in a painless visit and subsequent tooth movement is gentle and quick.
