Caption

Dental brace. Shape memory metal dental brace on a model upper jaw. Braces, or orthodontic devices, consist of metal brackets cemented or clamped onto teeth and connected together with an adjustable wire. Shape memory metals are alloys made from nickel and titanium along with copper or alumin- ium. As the brace warms up it change into its original shape, slowly correcting poor teeth alignment (malocclusions) or teeth overcrowding.
