Title (EN) INSERTABLE AND PREFABRICATED ATTACHMENTS FOR AN ORAL SHELL
(FR) ÉLÉMENTS DE FIXATION INSÉRABLES ET PRÉFABRIQUÉS DESTINÉS À UNE COQUE BUCCALE
Abstract:
(EN) A plastic shell such as an orthodontic aligner has an interior shape that substantially conforms to a current or future dental arch of a patient. The plastic shell includes a hollow feature comprising a cavity. The plastic shell additionally includes an object inserted into the cavity, wherein the object provides structural strength to the plastic shell at a location of the hollow feature and does not interfere with a fit of the plastic shell onto the dental arch of the patient.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une coque en plastique telle qu'un dispositif d'alignement orthodontique présentant une forme intérieure qui épouse sensiblement la forme d'une arcade dentaire actuelle ou future d'un patient. La coque en plastique comprend un élément creux comportant une cavité. La coque en plastique comprend en outre un objet inséré dans la cavité, l'objet présentant une résistance structurale à la coque en plastique au niveau d'un emplacement de l'élément creux et n'entravant pas un ajustement de la coque en plastique sur l'arcade dentaire du patient.
