Insignia is a computer software and manufacturing process that allows the doctors to provide a truly customizable treatment for each and every patient. In most orthodontic practices, every patient receives the exact same type of brace regardless of their teeth shape, bite, or severity of the case. At Ollins Orthodontics, we are able to provide custom braces, made for specifically for each tooth for everyone of our patients.
Using our new intra oral high tech video camera, called Lythos, we are able to digitally capture with incredible detail the shape, contour, and position of the patient’s teeth. The advanced Insignia software allows the doctors to virtually treat the case on the computer and plan specific movements of every tooth from beginning to end. This is truly treatment “beginning with the end in mind”.
Once the doctors have planned the case virtually on the computer, we manufacture each Damon braces with specifications down to the tenth of a degree. Using a high tech process, every brace is custom made for each patient and placed into a bonding jig to be used to accurately transfer the position of the brace from the computer to the patient’s mouth.
Once the custom braces are manufactured, they are placed into transfer jigs that fit onto the tops of the patients teeth allowing for precise bracket placement. The transfer jigs dramatically cut down the time the patient is in the chair, allowing for a more comfortable experience, during the bonding appointment since the doctors are able to place multiple brackets at one time.
We think this technology is pretty cool so see this patient’s journey from start to finish with Insignia. Check out one our Insignia cases from start to finish.
