Scan patient normally, capturing a full palate scan. No need to place separators. Upload scan and submit Rx using DynaFusion®.


The submitted scan is then used to design custom bands for the appliance. The fileis prepped for printing.


Once the file has b een rendered and prepped by our team, we begin 3D metal printing of the custom bands in-house.


Instructions for bonding or debonding custom printed bands are available below.

Follow Standard Band/Crown Appliance Bonding set up. The properties of this metal (316L) are similar to current bands/crowns therefore the bonding method is the same. Many different Glass ionomer or light-cured adhesives will work for bonding, however, we recommend using Reliance Ultra Band-Lok Light Cure Adhesive (DynaFlex® Item #18-UBBPP).

Recommended Steps:

Step 1: Ensure appliance fits patient properly prior to bonding.

Step 2: For stronger bond strength; micro-etch interior of band or wings.

Step 3: It is recommended to acid etch each tooth that will have bonding adhesive.

Step 4: Isolate and prep teeth in normal procedure.

Step 5: Use of bonding booster is recommended but is optional.

Step 6: Small ring of adhesive is placed around the occlusal surface of the crown/band and other surfaces touching teeth per design of appliance.

Step 7: Seat appliance. Use cotton roll or other seating accessory to fully seat appliance if necessary.

Step 8: Clean up flash.

Step 9: Light cure as needed per adhesive instructions.


Debond is similar to traditional band/crown debonding technique.

Recommended Steps:

Step 1: Use band/crown removal instrument (DynaFlex® Item #M-D444). Option: Slit the buccal side of crown with a bur for easy removal.

Step 2: Remove remaining adhesive and properly clean all tooth surfaces where bonding occurred.


STEP 1: In DynaFusion®, scroll down to Select Crowns Or Bands To Be Seated.

STEP 2: Select DynaFlex Custom Direct Printed Bands.

STEP 3: Select the correct upper & lower tooth.

Banded appliance visits used to be kind of stressful. Now they’re predictable and relaxed. A couple seconds prepping the patient, a few more seconds placing the appliance, and the rest of the time covering patient education. Fits our workflow about as nicely as it fits in the mouth

I love the precise fit and digital workflow of the metal 3D printed appliances from DynaFlex®. Simply scan and then cement! No goopy impressions or separators needed. It’s a great way to differentiate your practice!
