Frequently Asked Questions

What bracket prescription does KLOwen Braces use?

The prescription is whatever the patient needs.
With our 27 types of brackets & tubes of various thicknesses and torques, you will have all you need to do a fully customized treatment for any patient.
Any last bit of space (always less than 5 degress and 0.2mm) is filled with the composite when bonding to the teeth using our precise 3D-Printed bonding trays. This is how you get 100% customization.

What are the specifications/details of the brackets?

KLOwen Braces have a 19.5 slot size, which is filled by our 19x25 size wires.
For custom treatment, we need to fill the slot. The bracket with the perfect torque and thickness is automatically populated through the software, allowing a straight course to your goal while greatly reducing, if not eliminating, the need for wire-bending or bracket repositioning.

How is the bonding technique different for indirect versus direct bonding?

Since the tray obscures the cure light, you need to cure for twice the normal amount as the instructions of your cure light recommends. No matter what bracket is needed for each tooth, we can keep the space between the tooth and bracket pad within 0.5 millimeters, meaning you will notice after your first case that you don't need to use as much bonding adhesive. 

What indirect bonding software are you using?

We have partnered with OrthoSelect, a digital orthodontic laboratory, using their DIBS (Digital Indirect Bonding System) software with the automated KLOwen Braces feature built-in. It's very user-friendly and creates the easiest-to-use delivery tray that you are able to 3D-Print yourself in-office.
When starting with KLOwen Custom Braces, we will do some of the work for you while training you at the same time on software, IDB technique, messaging, etc.
