What are Insignia Braces?
Insignia braces use 3D imaging technology to create braces customised for your teeth. They are designed to fit the shape of your teeth, having smaller brackets and wires. This makes them more comfortable and less noticeable than traditional braces.
The Process of Getting Insignia Braces
At Mosman Fine Dental, we use the latest digital CAD-CAM technology to design your smile and bite for braces for a flawless fit and improved accuracy. Our Insignia braces process generally involves:
1. Taking digital impressions
If our dentists think you are a good candidate for Insignia, they will take a digital scan of your teeth for the Insignia smile design laboratory. This scan precisely captures each side of your teeth and builds a virtual model of your dental arches. The scan data is combined with digital pictures and x-rays to form an individualised treatment plan.
2. Planning your treatment
The 3D technology, along with x-rays and an assessment of your teeth misalignment and bite allows us to get precise measurements for your braces to formulate a personalised treatment plan. Your treatment plan is designed to generate an optimal tooth movement with fewer office visits and superior comfort.
3. Creating your braces
The Insignia braces are made using CAD CAM technology for an ideal fit. Each bracket and wire is fabricated according to the 3D treatment plan for unmatched accuracy and faster results than conventional orthodontic treatments.
The entire process, from the first step of taking your scan to getting your Insignia braces ready, can take about six to eight weeks.
4. Fitting your braces
Once your braces are ready, we will call you to get them fitted. The process of placing your Insignia braces is way quicker than traditional braces. Since the braces have been custom-made for your teeth, they can be placed by attaching three to four brackets at once rather than individually. This means less time at the dentist and a faster, more efficient application process.
After the application, you will be required to come in to get your Insignia braces adjusted as your teeth align and move towards the desired outcome. Insignia braces treatment time for any orthodontic treatment varies for each patient depending on the condition of their teeth and alignment.
Benefits of Insignia Braces
Insignia braces offer multiple benefits making them a preferred option over traditional braces. They include:
1. Faster treatment time
Insignia braces have been shown to reduce treatment times because every bracket is custom-made, and robotic technology is used to prebend your wires – giving you added speed to complete your treatments faster.
2. Customised treatment
Insignia braces are customised to the last bracket and wire because of the use of digital technology. This means your braces are more comfortable and fit better on your teeth, allowing optimal tooth movement and improved functionality.
3. Accurate results
Insignia braces utilise digital technology to map your teeth and create braces to fit your dental structure. The digital software also allows dentists to track the patient’s treatment progress and make adjustments as needed, providing greater accuracy and reliable results.
4. Gets higher quality treatment outcomes
With the advanced Insignia 3D technology, you can see what your smile looks like even before the treatment begins. This provides you with a higher level of assurance that you may not find with other orthodontic methods.
