Is there anyone who is creating braces?
« on: 10. February 2021, 01:43:26 AM »
Hello. I'm 20 years old boy from Poland. I would like to get braces but it's too expensive in my country. I'm looking for someone who creating braces and would like to create one for me. Of course I can pay, but not that much...  I'm thinking about orthopedics and orthodontics braces :)

Orthopaedic braces is indeed more difficult.
But you can check vintage braces UK they are active on social media and they have a website.

You have to go regularly to sites like ebay ... there are often advertisements for this kind of product, I was able to get an orthopedic corset that suits me perfectly for 70 euros.

I have a dental vacuum former from Ebay and have been experimenting. I can do Essix retainers and also very realistic metal braces by gluing the brackets onto the plaster model and vacuum forming over them, the glue snaps off the plaster model and leaves the brackets and wires embedded in the plastic. But I don't do them commercially, just for myself.
Would be interested if anyone has tried successfully gluing brackets to smooth plastic, there is a product called Aligner Bond but it is ££££.
Super glue does not do much, nor does orthodontic adhesive or dental bonding material.
I wondered about the stuff that you use to glue car rear view mirrors to windscreens?

Very good.

I'm going to be experimenting with Bondic today or tomorrow for exactly this purpose. It's inexpensive and non-toxic, supposedly invented by a German dentist. I'll be (re)attaching metal brackets to an acrylic tray today or tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes.

I have been experimenting using a little engraver tool I use for jewellery making.
If I glue brackets onto all the teeth of the model, them thermoform 1mm plastic over the top I can use the little rotary engraver to cut away the plastic around and over the brackets. This leaves them exposed as they would be during treatment. I can then put on wires and ligs (blue today!) and they are just like real braces - the bracket bases are held by the plastic but the rest of the brackets and wires are like real braces.
I can even use the elastic hooks for elastics - I put brackets with hooks on most of the teeth so I can try different elastic configurations. Very cheap to do, I think my vacuum former was £100, and after that the supplies are really cheap - £5 for a set of brackets, stick of ligs, and an archwire for example. All from Ebay.
The appliance it makes is like a nice mix of removable and fixed braces, I make it to cover my whole palate like a hawley. I am going to see if I can find a cheap Herbst to put on, I used to see used ones on German Ebay but not now, maybe they are against the rules.

I'm pleased to report that the Bondic worked like a charm! VERY good bond between the acrylic and the brackets. Recommended.
