How to make invisible brace?
Dentist will take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth. Impressions are converted into positives (plaster models) and checked for quality. models are first coated with protective shells, and encased in a mixture of resin and a hardener. After chemical setting, they become blocks of hardened resin with many plaster models inside. Each tray is placed in a destructive scanning machine. This removes paper thin slices 3000 of an inch, while a digital camera takes two dimensional images of each of these slices.The computer gathers more than 300 such images to create the 3D model.The designers cut out each tooth and save it as a separate geometric unit. Once the teeth are separated and re-assembled back into the arches, the designers create a final set-up of what the patient's teeth will look like when the treatment is completed. For each stereolithographic constructed model (which represents a treatment stage), a clear invisible Brace aligner is created by heat.
