Divign™ Dental Care Awarded a Milestone Patent for Sophisticated Tooth Movement

November 16, 2021
New York, NY

An integral component of Divign Dental Care to enhance tooth movement velocity has been recognized as a novel method to expedite and reverse the harmful effects caused by periodontal, sleep, and occlusal diseases. It is minimally invasive.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office issued patent #11,173,014 to Elliot Davis, D.D.S., a general dentist and inventor in New York, NY.

Executive Summary

A patent issued for a “Minimally Invasive Method to Enhance Tooth Movement Velocity” advances the state-of-the-art in conservative dental health care..

Bone acceleration surgery therapy (BAST), a minimally invasive corticotomy, is a critical component of the Divign Dental Care protocol. Dental corticotomies increase the rate of tooth movement by stimulating the underlying bone. During these procedures, varying amounts of bone are removed. One corticotomy requires grafting to replace bone removed during the procedure.

BAST is dentistry’s first corticotomy to provide sufficient osseous stimulation to increase the rate of tooth movement without adversely affecting the density of the supportive bone. This new and gentler standard, which helps ensure a successful and stable result, is preferred by patients and warmly appreciative clinicians. (See “Is Patented Bone Acceleration Surgical Therapy right for you?”)

About Divign Dental Care

Divign Dental Aligner Care improves periodontal and sleep health and increases the likelihood of obtaining a stable result. It can be provided in a non-invasive or minimally invasive manner. Divign Care should be considered a top alternative to periodontal surgery, orthodontic aligner and traditional orthodontic therapy, dental implant surgery. gum graft and TMD surgeries. It can also replace intraoral sleep aid devices.

The main components of Divign Care are the periodontal aligner protocol, BAST, and enamel replacement therapy.

Divign is the only tooth movement process to measure success by qualitative and quantitative improvements of the gingiva (achievement of Gingival Health Levels I, II, III). Final tooth positions and occlusion are used to measure success after orthodontics.

However, periodontal health is a high standard and truer predictor of a dental treatment’s lasting success.

Tens of millions of patients would benefit from Divign’s unique designs and robust protocols.

Divign’s Distinct Goals

While Divign’s periodontal aligners are visually indistinguishable from clear orthodontic aligners, they are elegantly programmed with significant advances to facilitate the following:

  1. Reduction — If not the eradication — of periodontal disease;
  2. improvement of sleep health;
  3. foundation for a stable, lasting result;
  4. reduction of the need for elective orthognathic surgery or dental implant surgery;
  5. permit the placement of successful dental implants where, without Divign Care, that treatment option would not be possible.
