Indirect Bonding Braces


What is Indirect Bonding?

Okubo Orthodontics uses the time-tested and time-saving technique “Indirect Bonding” to ensure optimal results. The brackets or braces are bonded to the front of the tooth, and then a wire is carefully bent, and used to straighten the teeth for a perfect smile and a healthy bite.

Why Choose Indirect Bonding?

What is Indirect Bonding?

All teeth are a unique size and shape. Each orthodontic bracket has a specific prescription to accommodate variations in each tooth. The brackets are able to move the teeth in eight different directions. For optimal results, the brackets need to be positioned perfectly on the teeth so they can perform as they were designed.

How does Indirect Bonding Work?

Dr. Okubo uses the Indirect Bonding technique along with a detailed model of your teeth which is used to measure the angle, height, thickness, contour, and torque of each tooth. Each bracket is then carefully positioned on the tooth. The brackets are encapsulated in a tray that holds their position until they are bonded to the teeth.
