In the ever-evolving field of orthodontics, technological advancements continue to transform how we perfect smiles. At Exeter Smiles in Allentown and Reading, we pride ourselves on staying at the forefront of orthodontic care by offering technological advancements that put quality and comfort first. One of the most exciting technological developments in recent years is the integration of DIBS AI by OrthoSelect into our orthodontic treatments, particularly in the placement of braces.

The Traditional Bracket Placement Process

The braces treatment has long relied on the precise placement of brackets on the tooth’s surface to guide its movement and achieve the desired alignment. Traditionally, this process involves several meticulous steps.

Our orthodontist in Allentown and Reading begins with a comprehensive examination, including X-rays and dental impressions. Then a customized treatment plan is developed based on your unique needs. Next, it’s time to place the brackets. We’ll manually position each bracket on the teeth using a dental adhesive. After the brackets are secured, an archwire is threaded through them, applying gentle pressure to the teeth and guiding them into their new positions over time. Regular follow-up visits are necessary to adjust the archwire and brackets, ensuring the teeth are aligned according to the treatment plan.

While this method has been effective for decades, it has its challenges. The manual placement of brackets can be time-consuming and subject to human error, leading to prolonged treatment times and less precise results. This is why DIBS AI by OrthoSelect is game-changing.

Bracket Placement with DIBS AI by OrthoSelect

DIBS AI by Ortho Select uses cutting-edge AI technology that transforms the way brackets are placed, eliminating human error and improving the speed of treatment times. DIBS AI stands for “Digital Interactive Bracket System,” a sophisticated platform designed to enhance the precision and efficiency of bracket placement.

Instead of traditional dental impressions, a digital scanner creates a detailed 3D model of the patient’s teeth. This model serves as the foundation for the AI-driven treatment plan. The DIBS AI system analyzes the 3D model and suggests optimal bracket positions based on specific orthodontic goals. This reduces the margin of error and speeds up the overall treatment process. DIBS AI by OrthoSelect can also assist in monitoring treatment progress, making adjustments more streamlined and responsive to the patient’s needs.
