ST. PAUL‚ Minn.

As thousands of orthodontists and staff from around the world descend on the Annual Session of the American Association of Orthodontists in San Diego, CA this week, 3M is proud to announce a broad portfolio of issued patents and intellectual property rights, issued over the last few years, encompassing indirect bonding for orthodontic treatments. Claims covered by these patents intend to enable orthodontists to improve their bracket placement accuracy—and, ultimately, lead to better clinical outcomes.

The issued patents cover a wide selection of methods and articles used today for indirectly bonding brackets, including:

  • Method of making an indirect bonding tray for orthodontic treatment
  • Methods and assemblies for making an orthodontic bonding tray using rapid prototyping
  • Apparatus for indirect bonding of orthodontic appliances and method of making the same
  • Orthodontic indirect bonding apparatus with occlusal positioning stop members
  • Orthodontic indirect bonding tray with moisture control
  • Apparatus and methods for controlling moisture during orthodontic indirect bonding procedures
  • Orthodontic methods and apparatus for applying a composition to a patient’s teeth

In an ever-changing world, orthodontists can continue to rely on the trusted 3M name to deliver proven products and solutions for advanced performance, esthetics and efficiency.

“We feel that combining our indirect bonding intellectual property with our patented 3M™ APC™ Flash-Free Adhesive technology will prove to enhance office productivity and treatment outcomes,” says Sam Lintereur, Global Procedure Marketing Manager, 3M Oral Care.

3M currently partners with multiple digital treatment planning software providers, including 3Shape, Motion View and Image Instruments, to provide excellent treatment experiences with bracket libraries of its popular brands. 3M is also open to licensing some of its intellectual property rights to interested parties.
