+ Principles of Operation of the Device
- Use the DIBS software to digitally place brackets and create the indirect bonding tray.
- 3D Print the bonding tray
- Post-processing (cleaning and curing)
- Clinical use of the DIBS bonding tray
+ Conditions of Use
DIBS software is designed for use on computers in a dental office, lab, or clinical environment. DIBS trays are for use in a clinical environment.
Follow the instructions and precautions provided by your bracket manufacturer. For Isolation, use of a NOLA Dry Field System is strongly recommended. See clinical documentation: **__**
DIBS bond failures are rare. When they occur, the cause is typically saliva contamination of the bonding site or insufficient curing.
- To prevent contamination of the bonding site, it is highly recommended that a NOLA Dry Field System be used with DIBS.
- It is important to realize that the curing light intensity is reduced by almost half when curing bonding agent through a DIBS tray; so you should double the light intensity (turbo setting on some models) or the cure time.
