Okubo Orthodontics uses the quality assurance and time saving technique “Indirect Bonding” to ensure maximum results
Why Indirect Bonding
All teeth have a unique size, shape and contour. Each orthodontic bracket has a specific prescription to accommodate variations in each tooth. The brackets are “programmed” 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 It works
Dr. Okubo uses the INDIRECT BONDING technique along with a detailed model of your teeth which is used to measure the angulation, height, thickness, contour and torque of each tooth. Each bracket is then accurately positioned on the tooth. The brackets are encapsulated in a tray that holds their position until they are bonded to the teeth.
- Ideal tooth position;
- Reduced treatment time;
- Precisely aligned brackets;
- Increased patient satisfaction;
- Reduced likelihood of relapse;
- Higher level of precision and strength;
- Reduced rate of re-bonds after delivery;
- Reduced chair time at initial appointment.
