WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF CUSTOMIZED BRACKETS?
The front surface of our teeth is flat, so the adaptation of ready-made brackets is easy, but the back surfaces of the teeth are different for each individual. Therefore, it is difficult to hold onto these areas with ready-made brackets. With specially prepared brackets, a better adaptation is achieved, a structure that fully grasps the tooth from its posterior surface and that the necessary preparations for getting the correct position can be made more ideally. This is a situation that shortens the treatment time considerably.
HOW IS THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF CUSTOMIZED BRACKETS AND WIRES?
Personalized brackets start with the transfer of the measurement taken from the patient to the digital platform. Afterwards, the surface topography is evaluated and a suitable infrastructure is prepared for the surface. In this infrastructure, the area for the bracket is determined at the most ideal point. In this designated area, the bracket and the infrastructure are combined. After the bracket is prepared, special robotic wires are produced for all teeth. In this way, the wires required to bring the teeth to the most ideal position are prepared and sent to the physicians to be applied to the patients.
