Patient demand for invisible, convenient and comfortable orthodontic care continues to grow. At the same time,
orthodontic practices worldwide continue to search for appliance systems that can deliver predictable, effective
and efficient treatment results. Finally, there is a solution.
Take PVS Impression and Wax Bite
Submit the patient's prescription via Lava™ Treatment Management Portal, or fill out a lab order form, and send with the impression and wax bite to the 3M lab in Monrovia, California.
Set Up Final Result
3M highly qualified technicians produce the setup in either a manual or digital process according to the doctor's individual prescription, based on Andrew's Six Keys*.
Digital setup for Incognito™ Lite Appliance System
Doctor approves the setup to ensure brackets and wires are manufactured to deliver the final result that will meet the treatment plan.
Create 3D Digital Model
An optical 3D scanner creates a high-resolution 3D digital model from the approved setup.
Bracket bases are drafted, tie-wings and hooks are adjusted and brackets are assembled on the base in the optimal position.
Brackets are printed using a Stereolithography Apparatus and then cast in gold.
Customized archwires are fabricated and bent to the final result using robotic technology.
Customize Indirect Bonding Tray
Brackets are first placed on the maloccluded stone model. The model is then used to produce the indirect bonding tray.
