Today is National Space Day 2021. The first Friday in May is dedicated to the extraordinary achievements, benefits, and opportunities in the exploration and use of space.
At Canyon Creek Orthodontics, we need to give a shout out to NASA for its contributions to the technology in Modern Orthodontics. The archwire and The Clear Bracket are two key parts of braces that were invented with NASA technology. 🔭🌎🥼

•The wire used for your orthodontic treatment was originally an alloy invented by NASA for aerospace applications. In 1979, after experimentation, Dr. George Andreasen achieved the patent for the invention of Nitinol. Nitinol is a thin, strong, and flexible wire that is activated by body heat, used for all orthodontic treatments.
•A company working with NASA invented the translucent ceramic that became the critical component of the first “invisible” dental braces, which went on to become one of the best-selling orthodontic products of all time. 🦷🥼
