BRIUS® FAQ’s (Orthodontists)

Mechanodontics FAQ’s

How long are treatment times with BRIUS®?

In a study by 20 orthodontist with an average experience of 11

years, 10 patient cases were presented. Each doctor gave their

predicted treatment time of the case presented using

traditional orthodontic methods such as clear aligners and

metal braces. These predictions were compared to the

actual length of treatment that was performed with BRIUS®. 

for each case demonstrated in the graph above. This study found that treatment times were reduced up to 87% (case 10) and

an average reduction of 70%. Therefore, signifying a significantly shorter treatment time using BRIUS® versus

traditional metal braces and clear aligners.

Will I feel any pain once the braces are on?

Although BRIUS® uses the smallest bracket in the

market today, you may feel some discomfort in the first two

weeks as your mouth gets accustomed to the new system.

It is important to note that feeling discomfort in the

beginning of any orthodontic treatment is normal and you

shouldn’t be alarmed by this.

How is each tooth moved? A complex Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is done based on the movement of each tooth. On this analysis,

the arms are then chosen such that the optimal force is then given to each individual tooth to get it to its correct position.

Do I have to check up with my orthodontist regularly? The great thing about BRIUS® is that you don’t have to go to your

orthodontist for adjustments on a regular basis. In most cases the only time you have to visit your orthodontist is to get the appliance

off. With the rare exception of a broken bracket or wire. Moderate to mild cases will only need one appliance whereas more complex

cases may need two appliances to finish the treatment.
