Introduction

This application guide is a step-by-step walkthrough of the workflow for producing indirect bonding trays for orthodontic bracket placement with Formlabs IBT Resin and Formlabs Dental 3D printers. Always consult the official Instructions For Use included in the packaging of the resin for the absolute requirements.
IBT Resin is a flexible biocompatible material for efficient, accurate dental bracket placement. 3D printed indirect bonding trays reduce chair time and increase patient comfort by placing all of the brackets or entire quadrants at once. Class I compliant IBT Resin offers optimized tear strength, translucency, and flexibility, for appliances that are easy to plan, easy to use, and easy to remove.

1. Scan

Dental design software requires a digital impression of the patient’s anatomy in order to design the indirect bonding tray. To acquire this data, scan the patient directly with a 3D intraoral scanner or scan a physical impression or poured model with a desktop 3D scanner.
