Infinitesimal leaps

Abstract:
A local start-up, BioMers, developed translucent braces and retainers in late 2008.
Nanotechnology was used to create a polymer composite wire that works as well as metal wires currently used in braces. Its latest products come coloured, as these are more popular with teens around the world.

Some local dentists are already carrying the products, which are only slightly more expensive - about 10 per cent - than current aesthetic braces.
