Indirect bonding is a technique in which molds of the teeth are made, and most of the work for the braces is done in the lab. It is a remarkable process that depends on our ability to make particularly accurate models of your teeth. Much detail goes into the accurate measurement and alignment of the model, since your mouth is naturally unique to you.
The brackets for the braces are placed on the models of the teeth, exactly in the right place, fitted into the trays made on the model, and sealed and cured.
The benefits of indirect bonding include:
- more precise placement of brackets
- less re-positioning of brackets
- faster application
- less trauma to patients
- better looking braces
- a more comfortable experience with a more predictable result
