Individual Patient (IP) Orthodontics in Auckland

Individual Patient (IP) Orthodontics
is an improved version of the standard (straight archwire) orthodontic treatment. It uses the most advanced orthodontic tools to provide you the highest levels of orthodontic treatment.

It Customised to you
IP Orthodontics gives dentists 10 times more bracket and archwire designs to choose from, instead of using a “one size fits all” bracket and archwire system like conventional braces do.  Each tooth is diagnosed to find the best bracket for the intended direction of tooth movement. Your braces will be designed and made for you.

Faster Treatment
Treatment with the IP Appliance® has been shown finish in 40% less time by adding torque and rotations early in cases

More Comfort
Since your braces and wires are customized to you, you have less wire changes, pain and irritation. This also means less travel and time in the dentists’ chair, with better results.

Better Smiles
IP Orthodontics’ diagnosis compensates for unwanted tooth movements. Computer aided diagnosis accurately predicts your teeth’s path to its final position, shortening your treatment time and reducing unexpected tooth movements.

Improved Retention
Retention has improved significantly by straightening the teeth more effectively, earlier in treatment. Customized brackets specific to each tooth’s rotation are applied to fully straighten your teeth. Since your dentist does not need to make as many archwire compensations throughout the treatment, your teeth are straightened to their final positions earlier and have improved capacity to retain in that position.

An IP smile uses computer generated orthodontic technology that produces faster and more stable results. Your braces will be individually designed for the most effective and fastest treatment. With the aid of a computer, your dentist diagnoses your teeth, bone structure, and facial profile to develop your treatment plan and customize your brackets.
Your dentist uses cutting edge orthodontic technology to create the optimal treatment plan for you. Your doctor analyzes every detail before the case starts to interpret any potential problems before they happen. Some of the technologies used include digital cephalometric analysis, model measuring, visual treatment objectives and over 150 treatment plan templates.
After your dentist completes a comprehensive diagnosis, he/she places an order to Progressive Dental Supply to customize your specific braces. Welders will execute the precise angles, torques and rotations to your unique bands, brackets and wires. After going through quality control, your Individual Patient Appliances® are sent back to your doctor to start your orthodontic treatment.
