My braces by Orthorobot

lingualBraces behind teeth
Braces on the back of the teeth are bonded using a so called indirect bonding technique. The brackets are bonded onto a model with a robot in the laboratory, taken from the model with a transfer foil and bonded in the mouth using the transfer foil.

Advantages: non visible
Disadvantages: eating and speaking is hindered during the adjustment period (approx. two weeks).

buccalBraces on the front side of teeth
Normally front side braces are bonded by hand directly onto the teeth. To make positioning the brackets more accurate, easier and quicker it is possible to use the indirect bonding technique also for front side braces. The brackets are first bonded onto a dental model with a robot and then bonded onto the patient's teeth using a transfer tray.

Advatange: no handicap when eating or speaking
Disadvantage: braces are visible


Treatment process

laborprozess-pat Your doctor takes an impression of your teeth and sends it together with a model of the desired treatment result to Orthorobot. This target setup can also be created by Orthorobot according to your doctor's instructions.

Orthorobot positions the brackets onto a model of your teeth and bends the archwires. The brackets are then taken from the model using a special transfer tray and sends them to your doctor together with the wires. Your doctor uses the transfer tray to bond the brackets onto your teeth on their exact positions. The first archwire is inserted. During the treatment the archwires are constantly changed from softer to harder ones. If a bracket should be lost it is possible to reposition it with the robot and bond it with a single transfer tray onto your tooth.

After approximatley two years the teeth have reached their desired position and the treatment is finished.
