Braces 3D Printed Infrared

A group of researchers at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have used 3D printing to incorporate NIR therapy directly into dental braces. Near infrared (NIR) light therapy is a technique used for speeding healing and relieving pain. The brace is customizable and provides sufficient external loading to stimulate healthy rebuilding of the bone structures.
