Indirect Bonding: Improving the Braces Experience

RiteBite Orthodontics uses an indirect method of positioning your braces properly on your teeth, ultimately creating an ideal smile for you. Indirect bonding results in an increased level of precision, leading to ideal results much faster than you would with traditional methods. Traditional application of braces involved a long appointment, placing the braces on the teeth one at a time, directly in the mouth. The old method of placing braces directly on the teeth, one at a time, while the patient is in the dental chair is prone to inaccuracy and errors due to the inability to directly view the teeth properly and patient movement.

How does it work?

Once you have decided to proceed with orthodontic treatment, an appointment is arranged to take very accurate impressions of your teeth. The impressions are then poured and a model representation of your teeth is produced. The model of your teeth, allows Dr. Luis to examine your teeth from every angle imaginable, for precision positioning of your braces. Dr. Luis then positions your braces on your tooth model.

What does treatment with indirect bonding mean to you?

With the indirect bonding system, the top and bottom braces are placed as a single unit, rather than tooth-by-tooth, resulting in a much shorter and pleasant appointment the day you receive your braces. The treatment results generated by this method enable exceptional accuracy when positioning braces, because Dr. Luis is able to fine tune bracket placement with unmatched precision. Because of increased accuracy, patient cases using indirect bonding progress much faster than usual, meaning less time in braces and patients also have to undergo fewer adjustment appointments. This means less disruption to your everyday life.


  1. Dental braces use a sliding door technology known as “self ligation”. There is less friction in the braces which leads to
    greater patient comfort and faster tooth movement. Using these braces will result in shorter
    treatment time and fewer number of adjustments.

  2. Clear Correct aligners are made of a strong clear plastic that gradually guides your teeth into proper alignment. Unlike metal braces there are

    no brackets or wires to catch your lip or cheek on. Cleaning your teeth with clear aligners is easy because you the aligner out to do it and then

    pop them back in.
