LED Braces

Posted on 09. Feb, 2013 by in Orthodontistry

Leave it to Japanese orthodontistry to insert LED’s into braces. Not really, but it almost looks like it.

The LED lights were designed by a tech artist (Daito Manabe) for an ad campaign for a Japanese department store. The lights actually fit inside the mouth and are controlled wirelessly by a computer. They can change colors and can blink.

The lights are not for sale or in production, but if the ad campaigns take off or if initial response remains high – then LED braces and mouth lights could become a popular appliance in Japan.
