Orthodontic tech company makes US debut

Vienna, Austria-based Biolux Technology launched OrthoPulse, a device used to facilitate tooth movement, launched in the U.S.

OrthoPulse 2.0 is used in addition to clear aligners or traditional bracket braces. The technology utilizes light energy to stimulate the bone surrounding tooth roots, leading to faster and more predictable tooth movement, according to a July 8 news release. 

To guide the U.S. launch, the company appointed Michael Hendricks as chief business officer of North America. 

The mouthpiece is the first device of its kind that is FDA-approved for use with both aligners and braces, according to the company's website.
