Title (EN) METHOD AND DEVICES TO INCREASE CRANIOFACIAL BONE DENSITY
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIFS PERMETTANT D’ACCROÎTRE LA DENSITÉ OSSEUSE CRÂNIO-FACIALE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to a method for increasing bone growth in teeth and/or other craniofacial regions of a subject. This method includes administering to the jaw and/or teeth of the subject a mechanical vibration having a frequency of 10 to 1000 Hz with an acceleration peak of 0.1 to 2.00 g and that can produce a low magnitude strain of 1 to 50 microstrain in the jaw and/or teeth. The present invention also relates to devices that deliver high frequency, low magnitude force to the teeth.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un procédé permettant d’accroître la croissance osseuse dans la région des dents et/ou dans d’autres régions crânio-faciales d’un sujet. Ledit procédé inclut l’application à la mâchoire et/ou aux dents du sujet d’une vibration mécanique avec une fréquence comprise entre 10 et 1 000 Hz avec un pic d’accélération de 0,1 à 2,00 g, capable de produire une contrainte d’intensité basse de 1 à 50 micro-contraintes dans la mâchoire et/ou les dents. La présente invention concerne également des dispositifs qui fournissent une force de haute fréquence et faible intensité aux dents.
