For years, there have been two common methods for straightening teeth: braces and aligners. While these do a great job of giving patients beautiful smiles, they often have their own unique limitations. So what if there was a third way of straightening teeth that does not require braces or aligners?

Dr. Mehdi Peikar used his knowledge of physics and mechanics to create Brius Technologies as that third way of straightening teeth. Placed behind the teeth, Brius allows for the independent movement of each tooth. He now shares that technology with other orthodontists to help them treat and straighten their patients' teeth in a way that improves the experience for everyone. 

In this episode of the In Your Face Podcast, Dr. Blair Feldman interviews Dr. Mehdi Peikar, the Founder, Chief Technology Officer, and Chief Medical Officer at Brius Technologies, about his revolutionary technology for straightening teeth. Dr. Peikar explains how the idea for Brius came about, the way the system works, and their process for onboarding and training orthodontists on this innovative method. Stay tuned.
