3Shape shortens the orthodontic Indirect Bonding workflow

Copenhagen, April 19, 2017 – 3Shape’s new Indirect Bonding solution significantly reduces time in the orthodontic workflow. 3Shape will introduce the solution at its press conference at the American Association of Orthodontist meeting in San Diego (AAO 2017), April 22, 10:00AM – booth #3519.

3Shape Bracket Placement, an add-on module to 3Shape Ortho Planner software and part of its indirect bonding solution, can now automate the movement of teeth to create an ideal setup for orthodontists and lab technicians - a change that eliminates the need for professionals having to spend time manually adjusting teeth in the digital workflow.

Professionals using the 3Shape Bracket Placement module can first choose the bracket library and wires they prefer. With a simple click, the software automatically adjusts the patient’s malocclusion to create the ideal setup. The professional can then make any small adjustments to the setup they prefer, which the software will correspondingly change in the bracket placement. Doctors with their own vision for ideal setups can save preferences, to always create that setup.

Using the 3Shape Bracket Transfer module, also a module within the 3Shape indirect bonding solution, professionals can then create the transfer media to bond the physical brackets in the patient as well. The entire digital workflow begins with a 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scan or by scanning a physical impression with a 3Shape lab scanner.

“Our 3Shape Indirect Bonding solution makes the entire bracket placement workflow much more efficient,” says Allan Hyldal, 3Shape Vice President for Orthodontics. “In essence, you choose the result, the ideal setup, and the software based on your vision, makes it happen for you. Any need for manual adjustment of the teeth in the software is minimized.

So whether you are an orthodontistin Europe who prefers raised laterals, or you’re looking for a Hollywood smile, the software instantly adjusts the malocclusion to create the ideal setup for your patient.”

To make the process even smoother, 3Shape has created integrations with a wide selection of original manufacturer’s bracket libraries, including the just-announced exclusive integration with American Orthodontics, as well as integrations with Dentaurum, Forestadent, Henry Schein Orthodontics, Ormco, RMO, and more.
