The Aerodentis braces has started new clinical trials at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry. The treatment, called Aerodentis, applies pulsating air through a mouthpiece connected to a small console to move teeth gradually into the desired position and occlusion.
“We’ve had a big shift in the way we care for patients who need braces,” said Professor Chung H. Kau, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Orthodontics. Although it is not FDA-approved yet, Kau believes that, if Aerodentis is proven to work, it will be only a matter of time before it catches on in the United States. The Aerodentis system is CE-approved and is being used by doctors in Israel and Europe.
Dror Orthodesign is a privately held medical device company based in Jerusalem that designs, develops, and manufactures pioneering orthodontic solutions to improve dental care and orthodontic treatment. The Company’s flagship Aerodentis system is an aesthetic alternative to conventional braces and clear aligners that is faster, more effective, safer and more comfortable.
The Aerodentis system was invented by Dr. Orit Nadav, DMD, MSc, a specialist in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. The system was developed over seven years by a highly skilled team of engineers, orthodontists, industrial designers, and dental technicians. The company is backed by a seasoned multidisciplinary team of executive professionals and researchers.
