Title (EN) CELLULAR ARCHITECTURE FOR CONTROLLED FOCAL STIFFNESS ACROSS INTRAORAL APPLIANCES
(FR) ARCHITECTURE CELLULAIRE PERMETTANT UNE RIGIDITÉ FOCALE CONTRÔLÉE DANS L'ENSEMBLE D'APPAREILS INTRA-BUCCAUX
Abstract:
(EN) Described herein are intraoral appliances with adaptive cellular materials and structures to provide enhanced mechanical properties and orthodontic functionality, and related methods. The described appliances may have higher Young's modulus and elongation rate than appliances made from conventional materials. Further, the described appliances may have desirable non-linear force/strain profiles. Additionally, the control provided by using cellular structures allow for increased customization for individual patients. Thus, the described appliances may be more effective, have longer appliance lifetimes and/or provide less discomfort to patients.
(FR) L'invention concerne des appareils intra-buccaux contenant des matériaux cellulaires et structures adaptatifs permettant d'obtenir des propriétés mécaniques et une fonctionnalité orthodontique améliorées, ainsi que des procédés associés. Les appareils d'après l'invention peuvent présenter un module de Young et un taux d'allongement supérieurs à ceux des appareils constitués de matériaux classiques. En outre, les appareils d'après l'invention peuvent présenter des profils de force/contrainte non linéaires souhaitables. De plus, le contrôle obtenu en utilisant des structures cellulaires permet une meilleure personnalisation pour des patients particuliers. Les appareils d'après l'invention peuvent donc être plus efficaces, avoir de plus longues durées de vie et/ou être plus confortables pour les patients.
