Aim: The aim of the study was to develop a method which can help us achieve precise and accurate direct bonding (DB). Background: Proper and accurate bracket position during orthodontic bonding is one of the main concerns for the clinician. Proper bonding reduces the effort to achieve good finishing by minimizing the wire bending. Unwanted tooth movements like unplanned tip, torque, and rotation are minimized, so the treatment time is shortened. Commonly used techniques for bonding brackets to teeth are DB and indirect bonding (IDB). Technique: A new technique involving the innovative use of tooth-shaped stickers was suggested to combine the advantages of both the methods. Conclusion: There was an accuracy in horizontal, vertical, and axial positioning of the brackets using this method. Clinical significance: We found this as an effective method to achieve ideal bracket position by eliminating subjective bias and standardizing the bonding procedure, thus achieving better results in a shorter time by eliminating bonding errors.
