    • Upper right—Blue.
    • Upper left—Black.
    • Lower right—Red.
    • Lower left—Yellow.
  • The dimple or paint mark is on the distogingival tie-wing unless otherwise noted.
  • Upper and lower 2nd bicuspids have dimples/paint on both gingival tie-wings.
  • Upper centrals are wider than upper laterals.
  • The lower laterals, cuspids and bicuspids also feature a scribe line on the occlusal tie-wing.
  • Because of the specificity of the Orthos appliance, there are no universal brackets.
  • Orthos lower laterals with CIS have a permanent I.D. dot on the distogingival tie-wing, with the appropriate color.

To achieve the proper expression of the Orthos appliance, all brackets should be placed at the following heights (based on the average patient).
