Step 4: CADCAM bracket manufacturing
The brackets are custom-milled to deliver the desired alignment as specified in the 3D treatment plan. The brackets and wires are then sent to us in custom trays, ready to be fitted to your teeth.
Step 5: Indirect bonding appointment
Insignia utilises an indirect bonding technique. The teeth are prepared as they would normally be for regular braces; however, instead of individually positioning the brackets one by one, which can be extremely time consuming, the custom tray is placed over the teeth, attaching three to four brackets at once. Once all the brackets are placed and set, the customised archwire is then inserted.
It takes approximately seven weeks between the scan appointment and having your braces fitted.
