MBT™ Versatile+ Bracket Positioning
Accuracy in bracket placement is of critical importance: the pre-adjusted tips and torques of each bracket perform best when the brackets are placed to move into a uniform arch alignment. The vertical axis is especially challenging to estimate correctly because of variances in gingival tissue or crown height that are not easily apparent. The MBT™ Versatile+ Appliance System leverages years of scientific study and clinical research to determine vertical placement norms. From those norms, the MBT™ System bracket placement process offers an efficient, standardised means for achieving intra-arch accuracy along the vertical axis.
3M Unitek offers the placement chart and a set of positioning instruments designed to make the application of this placement technique easily incorporated into an existing direct or indirect bonding process.
