A User’s Guide to Indirect Bonding
Essential for indirect orthodontic bonding, Emiluma and Lumaloc are made of a transparent silicone
that allows quick and precise delivery to the arch.
Emiluma is soft enough to remove indirect trays without debonding brackets yet firm enough to
maintain accurate bracket positioning. Lumaloc cures stiff to ensure proper tray fit and precise bracket
placement, yet it’s still easy to shape, mold, and trim.
• Materials chemically cure together to create a single tray with a soft interior
• Made of transparent material that allows brackets to be light cured through indirect bonding trays
• Unique formulations allow both products to remove cleanly without crumbling
• Easy-to-use cartridges fit in standard impression materials dispensing gun
• Supported by Dr. Richard P. McLaughlin and the developers of the Quick IDBS™—Drs. Masatada Koga, Kazuya Watanabe,
and Takako Koga
