Smartee works together with the orthodontic team led by Prof. Shen Gang to develop the invisible orthodontic device for maxilla/palate which is connected to the aligner, pioneering the launch of S11 invisible arch remodeling solution for maxillary horizontal expansion and intramaxillary anchorage enhancement. They extend the application of invisible orthodontics beyond dentition, turning out to be a major innovation since invisible orthodontics has been introduced.
A maxillary horizontal invisible orthopedic expansion device is customized through digital design and individual cutting. The band-shaped expansion sheet produces the tensile force for expansion as its arch is compressed, generating an orthopedic expansion effect. It can effectively expand the maxillary and arch width, and solve the problem including mild to moderate crowded teeth, constrictive maxilla and palatal compensation of maxillary posterior teeth.
3D printing technology is applied to manufacture the Nance device and TPA device for posterior teeth distalization and anterior teeth retraction through Smartee biomechanical and material science and the precise calculation of the digital system. Both devices make full use of the bone cortical anchorage of the palate and arch, providing anchorage for teeth movement and improving the efficiency of posterior teeth distalization and anterior teeth retraction.
