Braces are placed on 3D models of the teeth ahead of time. A custom tray is fabricated from the model (with the braces inside). The custom tray is placed over the teeth so all the braces are glued at the same time in their pre-determined positions.
Our office prefers indirect bonding because the process of putting on braces is much faster this way and patients report that they are able to better tolerate this method over the traditional way. In addition, the placement of your braces is more accurate compared to the traditional way. In the long run, this makes the treatment go smoother and potentially faster.
