Sheboygan, Wisconsin – American Orthodontics is proud to have its extensive proprietary bracket systems libraries digitally integrated with 3Shape’s Indirect Bonding application.

This exclusive integration enables orthodontists and labs using the FDA-cleared 3Shape indirect bonding solution to plan treatment using the virtual American Orthodontics Bracket System library, and then bond the AO brackets using digitally designed transfer trays.

The American Orthodontic Bracket System libraries can be accessed directly in 3shape orthodontic software. Treatment planning and bracket placement of the virtual libraries are made using a digital study model of the patient and/or with the 3Shape Indirect Bonding module. The models are created with a TRIOS intraoral scan or conventional impression scanned with a 3Shape dental lab scanner.

After treatment planning, the real American Orthodontic brackets are placed on the patient using transfer trays also designed with the 3Shape indirect bonding software and printed with a 3D printer.

“We are pleased to become the largest and most comprehensive library available within 3Shape orthodontics and partner with them in providing orthodontic labs and practices around the world with high quality digital treatment soloutions” says American Orthodontics Vice President of Marketing Michael Terrill.
