Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) is a trusted supplier of Shape Memory Alloy. We offer Nitinol for uses as dental braces and other medical applications.
-Traditional stainless steel wires have a tendency to lose tension over time. When the wire becomes slack, an orthodontist must readjust the wire. By using nitinol for the archwire, an orthodontist can mold the wire to the current shape of your teeth. Once the wire is placed in your mouth, it will begin to heat up. As it heats up, the wire will try to reform into its original straight shape.
-As the memory wires try to straighten out, they will exert gradual pressure on your teeth. Pressure over time is how teeth are moved in orthodontistry.
-Nitinol wires' main advantage in orthodontistry is reducing the number of adjustments needed over the lifetime of the braces.
-Nitinol is highly biocompatible and has properties suitable for use in orthopedic implants. Due to Nitinol's unique properties, it has seen a large demand for use in less invasive medical devices. Nitinol tubing is commonly used in catheters, stents, and superelastic needles.
-Nickel-titanium can be used to make the underwires for underwire bras.
-Nitinol is also used in cell-phone technology as a retractable antenna, or a microphone boom, due to its highly flexible and mechanical memory nature.
Our nitinol dental braces are clearly tagged and labeled externally to ensure efficient identification and quality control. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation.
