Fun Facts About Braces

Did you know?

The metal used to make braces was first made by NASA.

Nickel titanium was developed by NASA. This metal was produced specifically to be used in space shuttles because of its heat-activated property which allows the metal to be shaped. Today, this same metal is used for orthodontic treatment because of its ability to be shaped to fit the unique needs of patients. The end result is a smile that is perfectly shaped!
