Why Indirect Bonding Studio?

In conventional orthodontic workflows, patients need to have a physical impression taken or sit in the chair as brackets are directly bonded, one by one. Using a bonding tray as an intermediary step means that you can load all brackets simultaneously, saving you chair time. Switching to a digital workflow with Indirect Bonding Studio software makes bracket placement comfortable for patients and gives you digital precision. It also features an intuitive, visually-guided workflow with full user control to aid with precision and predictability.

How does the software work?

Original libraries integrated

Choose your preferred bracket libraries and arch forms from 550+ original integrated libraries from 25+ vendors.

Guided workflow based on your preferences

Create and save your ideal setup – the software guides you through the rest based on your preferences. Any adjustments are simple, as the software automatically makes the corresponding changes in the bracket placement.

Print or vacuum press

Print bonding trays either directly with your own 3D printer or vacuum press them on printed models.

Case study

“It’s a more comfortable process for the patients and I need to do far less repositioning of my brackets during the treatment. That benefits me in my finishing and it usually also means the process is faster in terms of total treatment time,” says Lars Christensen.
