A key factor for successful correction of a malocclusion with lingual orthodontics is optimal bracket positioning.This presentation focuses on the development of an innovative laboratory procedure for indirect bracket positioning using a modified positioning device (TARG Professional) called Transfer Optimized Positioning System (TOP). In contrast to commonly used approaches to indirect bonding such as CLASS and BEST, the TOP System uses a target set-up technique in order to facilitate the 3…

The lingual module developed by the author is a new scanner-independent procedure for calculation and manufacture of individual lingual archwires with the Orthomate®/Orthotherm® system (OrthoTel, Berlin/Dallas, Tx).

Customization in Lingual Orthodontics

New technologies like CAD/CAM, intraoral and cast model scanning, 3D printing and robotics have all led to the emergence of several customized lingual appliance systems that have been instrumental in enhancing the reliability, precision, and feasibility of lingual orthodontics.

Digital design and manufacturing of the Lingualcare bracket system.

The development of indirect bonding permitted more precise lingual bracket positioning and reduced the chairtime and labor required for bonding procedures and the demand for lingual orthodontic treatment in Europe and Asia has boomed in recent years.

This case report demonstrates that extensive and difficult orthodontic treatment requiring orthognathic surgery to correct a skeletal malocclusion is feasible with a fixed lingual appliance.

Comparison of the Initial Orthodontic Force Systems Produced by a New Lingual Bracket System and a Straight-Wire Appliance

The initial force systems produced by the new lingual bracket system proved to be comparable with those delivered by a conventional straight-wire appliance, but the actual levels of forces and moments were found in certain cases to be too heavy with both techniques.

Modified precision lingual bonding technique: A step-wise approach with torque angulation device-bracket positioning device

A step-wise procedures in bracket positioning and fabricating an indirect bonding tray for lingual orthodontics using the torque angulation device-bracket positioning device facilitated unhindered bonding even in severely crowded cases and easy rebonding during mid-treatment stages.

Vertical forces in labial and lingual orthodontics applied on maxillary incisors--a theoretical approach.

Basic biomechanical considerations were applied in understanding the influence of maxillary incisor inclination and to compare the effect of labial vs lingual intrusive/extrusive forces on tooth movement.

The initial demands for low bracket loss rates and simplified rebonding, controlled finishing and enhanced patient comfort have been largely met by the customized design and the flexibility in the manufacture of the new appliance.

A novel biomechanical model assessing orthodontic, continuous archwire activation in incognito lingual braces

The goal of placing labial and lingual bracket-wire systems on accurate anatomy including multiple teeth was achieved and the birth-death computer technique simulated the clinical effects of placing an archwire in brackets and allowing forces to be transferred from the bracket- wire system to the surrounding dental structures.
