Memory foam: not just for pillows any more

Orthodontics is a continually changing field, whether the research comes from the medical community or the product development side. I just read in Orthodontic Products Online about a new “shape memory” polymer that holds promise as a material to use in creating self-adjusting braces. (Whether or not it’s a foam, I can’t tell.) This material appears to be still in the laboratory development stage, but be sure to ask your orthodontist about the latest techniques and if they are available yet for your situation.

  1. I guess the memory foam pillow that we know has so many other uses.
