Dr. Y had his braces put on with a technique called "Indirect Bond".
Traditionally orthodontic brackets or "braces" were applied to the teeth one at time. Today there is a technique that allows for all of your braces to be placed at the same time. This technique is known as Indirect Bonding.
"Indirect" describes the process of your braces initially applied one by one to a plaster model of your teeth rather than directly to your teeth. The braces are then easily transferred to your mouth as a complete set. The process of getting braces is dramatically shorter with Indirect Bonding. Because all of the measurements and positioning of the braces are done on a plaster model of your teeth rather than in your mouth, our Indirect Bonding process is much more comfortable and precise than traditional methods.
Indirect Bonding is just one of the many state-of-the-art techniques and treatment philosophies Dr. Henry uses to ensure that you have the most comfortable orthodontic experience while ultimately seeing the best results!
