Indirect Bonding

When deciding on which orthodontic procedure is best for you, there are many factors to take into consideration. If you and your orthodontist decide that metal braces are best, you should know about the many technological advances that have come about over the years. Instead of the long, tedious process of placing each bracket individually on each tooth, indirect bonding allows your orthodontist to correctly place your braces at the same time.

How do indirect bonding braces work?

Indirect bonding braces, otherwise known as braces bonding, refers to a process in which metal brackets are placed on each of your teeth, simultaneously. After your orthodontist takes a mold of your teeth, they will make a customized tray for your upper and lower teeth. 

Using advanced technology, your orthodontist at Frigo will then calculate where the best placement for each bracket will be on each tooth. After affixing each bracket on a tray, they will place the tray on your upper and/or lower teeth, simultaneously bonding your brackets at once. 

What are the benefits of indirect bonding? 

Braces bonding usually takes between 15 and 20 minutes to affix to your teeth, while the traditional process takes at least 45 minutes. This translates into less time spent in your chair with cheek retractors. 

Not only does indirect bonding save you time, it also ensures you a more precise positioning of your brackets. With less time affixing your brackets, this proves for a more reliable procedure of affixing your braces. This means less likelihood of loose brackets and less probability of realigning your brackets.
