Orthodontics In Action
Indirect Bonding begins with fabricating a replica of your teeth. This is a quick process and gives us a precise model of your mouth. The brackets are then meticulously positioned on each tooth. In the final step; a custom tray is made that allows us to transfer the brackets from the model directly to your teeth.
By taking the time to place the brackets on a lab model first, it eliminates the process of placing brackets directly on the teeth. It also takes far less time, is more comfortable and allows for fewer loose brackets.
How Braces Work
Braces use steady gentle pressure to gradually move teeth into their proper positions. The brackets that are placed on your teeth and the archwire that connects them are the main components. When the archwire is placed into the brackets, it tries to return to its original shape. As it does so, it applies pressure to move your teeth to their new, more ideal positions.
