Title
(EN) USER-CUSTOMIZABLE ORTHOPEDIC ALIGNMENT DEVICE WITH ALIGNMENT GAP
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ALIGNEMENT ORTHOPÉDIQUE PERSONNALISABLE PAR L'UTILISATEUR AYANT UN ESPACE D'ALIGNEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
A user-customizable orthopedic alignment device (OAD) that includes a formable, generally semicircular mouthpiece which has an alignment gap that is generally in alignment with the user's canine teeth when the device is placed in the user's mouth. The OAD has an overmold of moldable material having portions that cover the user's molars and front teeth. The alignment gap is provided between rear (right and left) portions and the front portion to allow an alignment member to be positioned laterally between the user's canine teeth during molding of the overmold. A frame is provided to stiffen the OAD between the front and read portions. After the overmold has been molded to the user's teeth, inserts can be positioned in the alignment gap to provide cushioning between the canine teeth when the OAD is used. The inserts may be molded after they are inserted into the overmold assembly.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif d'alignement orthopédique (OAD) personnalisable par l'utilisateur, qui comprend un embout buccal pouvant être formé, généralement semi-circulaire, qui a un espace d'alignement qui est généralement aligné avec les canines de l'utilisateur lorsque le dispositif est placé dans la bouche de l'utilisateur. L'OAD a un surmoule en matériau moulable ayant des parties qui recouvrent les molaires et les dents avant de l'utilisateur. L'espace d'alignement est disposé entre des parties arrière (droite et gauche) et la partie avant pour permettre à un élément d'alignement d'être positionné latéralement entre les canines de l'utilisateur pendant le moulage du surmoule. Un cadre est prévu pour rigidifier l'OAD entre les parties avant et arrière. Une fois que le surmoule a été moulé sur les dents de l'utilisateur, des inserts peuvent être positionnés dans l'espace d'alignement pour assurer un amortissement entre les canines lorsque l'OAD est utilisé. Les inserts peuvent être moulés après leur insertion dans l'ensemble surmoule.
