About BRIUS® Braces

These truly invisible braces are some of the most innovative braces on the market! 

Dr. Matsumoto can treat most BRIUS cases in up to 55% less time than braces or clear aligner cases. BRIUS is truly invisible and requires less adjustment appointments than traditional braces.

So, how is this possible? What makes BRIUS braces so unique? Check it out!

BRIUS is an advanced form of lingual braces.

While traditional braces are fixed to the front surfaces of the teeth and are visible when you smile, lingual braces are fixed to the back surfaces of the teeth and are invisible when you smile.

BRIUS braces are attached to the inner tongue-side surfaces of the teeth, making them completely undetectable to everyone (except you and your orthodontist, of course).

BRIUS technology is one-of-a-kind.

BRIUS technology is truly one-of-a-kind. These braces use specialized brackets, a rigid bar, and flexible arms that move independently of each other. The arms are chosen via a complex Finite Element Analysis (FEA), which enables them to apply the ideal force/torque to each tooth.

Customized for each tooth, BRIUS produces the ideal pressure and movement needed for that particular tooth. This helps to minimize friction applied to the teeth, which allows for a quicker, more efficient treatment process.

How the BRIUS Process Works

We start with a comprehensive orthodontic exam. Dr. Matsumoto will examine your teeth, including your gums and bite position, and take diagnostic X-rays (using the i-CAT FLX v17, the latest in i-CAT CBCT imaging technology) and photos to identify any orthodontic or periodontal issues.

Dr. Matsumoto will use the iTero® Element 5D scanner to take digital impressions of your smile, and begin creating your customized treatment plan. We’ll then have your custom BRIUS brackets created, and at your next appointment, we’ll place your brackets to begin your treatment!

You will have minimum adjustment appointments with BRIUS braces, so you’ll be able to visit us on an as-needed basis for progress check-ins. We also offer Dental Monitoring for virtual, at-home check-in appointments!

Who is a candidate for BRIUS?

BRIUS is ideal for patients of all ages. Most patients are a candidate for BRIUS, but it’s important to remember that every case is unique. Dr. Matsumoto may suggest another treatment if he determines there to be another, more efficient treatment route for your condition.

Once Dr. Matsumoto examines your smile, he’ll determine whether BRIUS is the best route for you to achieve your perfect smile.
