In 100 years of advances in orthodontics, the preponderant role of the orthodontist has always been governed by the existence of the bracket. The new creations have always taken into account their structure, performance and design, to facilitate the work of the orthodontist and reduce the time spent in the consultation, making it the key marketer of this product. However, patients must continue to endure the inconveniences of a bulky and unsightly system that, in addition to affecting chewing, hygiene and muscle function, greatly alters speech, communication and self-esteem.
As of 2004, qualified professionals from our study group headed by Dr. Joaquín T. Ariza Olaya, began simultaneously in Bogotá and in New York important standardized laboratory tests, with the primary objective of finding a Minimally Invasive Orthodontic procedure (MIO) providing a viable solution to the inconveniences that occur with the current use of orthodontic appliances.
These tests determined that the real movement of the tooth could be obtained, obviating the use of the bracket with assembly and handling protocols with excellent results, similar to those obtained with conventional techniques that use the bracket as the main amendment.
