In our commitment to providing the very best in orthodontic care, our team at Hilliard & Dietrich Orthodontics has implemented a new and innovative way to place braces known as “indirect bonding,” a remarkable new way to place braces on our patients’ teeth and move them at a quicker pace. Instead of placing each bracket individually on the patient as called for with traditional orthodontics, we place them based on our patients’ model in the lab and create a custom tray with the brackets attached. The tray is then used to bond all the brackets onto the teeth at once, which allows for faster bracket placement, better bracket positioning, more efficient tooth movement, less adjustment visits for our patients, and shorter treatment times.
Our patients are often pleasantly surprised at how quickly and easily braces can be placed with this method. Indirect bonding is not widely used by orthodontists because of the time, expense, and expertise needed to perfect the process, but in our opinion, the results are well worth it.
Dr. Hilliard and Dr. Dietrich have perfected their indirect bonding method and are proud to offer this advanced technique to our patients. If you would like to learn more about indirect bonding, or to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Hilliard and Dr. Dietrich, please give us a call at our convenient Lakeland, FL office.
