+ Intended Patient Population

DIBS is intended for the treatment of malocclusion.

+ Principles of Operation of the Device

  1. Use the DIBS software to digitally place brackets and create the indirect bonding tray.
  2. 3D Print the bonding tray
  3. Post-processing (cleaning and curing)
  4. 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.

  1. To prevent contamination of the bonding site, it is highly recommended that a NOLA Dry Field System be used with DIBS.
  2. 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.
