DIBS Bonding

We are happy to offer a new alternative process for the teeth straightening process. Digital Indirect Bonding System, or DIBS technology, is changing the way patients experience braces and can be an effective alternative to the traditional application process. DIBS involves high-level 3D-printing technology that allows the ultimate precision when applying brackets to teeth. The DIBS application is simpler, less exhausting, can have a variety of other benefits for patients, and is worth your consideration.

What is Indirect Bonding?

Indirect Bonding is a new technique for the application of braces to teeth. The entire set of brackets can be applied at a time, in a much more expedited process. The technology used to construct models and trays minimizes room for error in bracket placement. Brackets are connected to a tray modeled after your teeth, which is ultimately used to apply all brackets to your teeth at once. While the traditional process involves applying one bracket to a tooth at a time in a typically strenuous process for both doctor and patient, DIBS manages to greatly reduce the time spent in the chair.

The Indirect Bonding Process

DIBS involves multiple steps including preparation before the application. Much of the preparation is done in a lab, greatly reducing your time in the office. First, a mold of the teeth is made. This mold is sent to the lab and used to create the trays that replicate your teeth to enable the best fit for brackets on your teeth. There is an incredible amount of detail in measuring and creating the perfect mold. Because every mouth is unique, the molds play a crucial role in ensuring the trays and brackets are a perfect fit.

Applying the Brackets

The trays built from your molds are the vehicle for applying the braces. Replicating your teeth, the trays have the brackets built in the same position they would be on your teeth. The process will feel similar to the traditional application. However, instead of having each bracket placed and connected to each individual tooth, the tray is placed in your mouth, aligning each bracket in the correct place. The brackets are then separated from the tray, leaving them connected in the perfect spot on your teeth. This process is much quicker than the traditional application process. Your teeth might require some maintenance before the brackets are applied, mainly the preparation of the surface of your teeth/crown for the adhesive from the brackets.

Advantages of DIBS

Opting for the DIBS application process instead of the traditional application comes with a few benefits. First, DIBS provides high-level straightening for patients in a much shorter time span. The technology ensures brackets are placed accurately and effectively setting up patients the smile they desire.

Bracket repositioning is also reduced or eliminated. Because DIBS technology is hyper-accurate, down to the micron, there is little to no need to ever adjust brackets in a repositioning session.

The traditional braces application can be a two-hour-plus appointment. However, the DIBS application dramatically reduces patient time in the chair. Using this technology, orthodontist can complete entire sets of bonding brackets in around thirty minutes.
