Japanese super-magnet bodes well for false teeth:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Hitachi Metals (Japan) has developed a magnetic attachment for joining artificial teeth and gums which has double the attraction of conventional magnetic attachments, according to JETRO. The Hicorexr Super uses a thin neodymium-iron-boron magnet comprised of two parts: a foundation attached to the teeth roots; and a magnetic member implanted in the resin bed of the false teeth. The device has a joining height of 2.3 mm, compared to usual heights of up to 2.5-3.1 mm, allowing the device to be used in traditionally difficult areas such as the front mandible. Hicorexr will be marketed by Japanese company J Morita.
