UBrackets: Printable Customised brackets and indirect bonding
Discover UBrackets, the most advanced indirect bonding software on the market that allows you to print your own custom brackets adapted to the shape of each tooth according to its position.
Three methods are present in the UBrackets module. The three methods make it possible to position the brackets in occlusion after performing the setup. They also allow the design of a positioning tray (indirect bonding technique) to place the brackets in malocclusion, labially or lingually.
• Printable customised brackets. The goal is to design custom brackets to be 3D printed. Depending on its position determined during the setup phase, each bracket will be automatically customised to fit perfectly to the dentition. For this method, Coruo provides brackets specially designed to take into account the constraints of impressions, whether with resins for crowns or with Zirconia. This module also offers the design of personalized bracket positioners, for bonding as precise as possible. The brackets and their wires will be exported for 3D printing as stl files.
Manufacturer brackets are not available for this method.
• Manufacturer’s brackets with resin base. The goal is to design a customization of standard brackets by adding a resin part between the bracket and the tooth. The use of standard libraries from different manufacturers makes this solution less expensive, while providing a custom solution for the patient. This type of approach not only improves daily workflow, but also improves efficiency; thanks to increased precision giving you full control over the treatment.
• Traditional method from manufacturer’s bracket library. Each bracket is positioned on the models in occlusion by adjusting height, torque and rotation.
With indirect bonding, orthodontic bracket placement is done digitally based on computer aided design software. In contrast to the traditional technique that involves time-consuming steps, in the sense that you must take a physical impression of the patient’s teeth or bond the brackets one by one while the patient is in chair.
