1: Indications For Use: Implant Direct Sybron Manufacturing, LLC.’s Custom Laboratory Prosthetics are customized devices and are intended for clinical situations for which the existing product assortment or replacement parts do not offer a feasible clinical solution. These patient-specific restorative products intended for use in partially and fully edentulous maxillary and mandibular dental arches in support of single and multiple-unit dental restorations and terminal or intermediate abutment support for fixed bridgework. 2: Training: Implant restoration involves complex procedures and should be performed by dental professionals who have received implantology training covering current techniques. Inadequate training may result in failure of the restoration and further complications. 3: Compatibility: 3.1: Custom Bars and Abutments are compatible at the implant-level with ScrewPlant, ScrewPlus, Legacy, RePlant, RePlus, ReActive, SwishPlant, SwishPlus & InterActive System implants. Custom Bars are also compatible with ScrewIndirect implants. • Legacy System: Prosthetically compatible with Zimmer Dental Tapered Screw-Vent system, BioHorizons and MIS implants. • RePlant, RePlus & ReActive Systems: Prosthetically compatible with Nobel Biocare NobelReplace tri-lobe system. • SwishPlant & SwishPlus Systems: Prosthetically compatible with Straumann Standard, Standard Plus and Tapered Effect systems. • InterActive System: Prosthetically compatible with Nobel Biocare NP & RP conical connection systems. 3.2: Custom Bars are compatible at the abutment-level with Implant Direct multi-unit abutments and Nobel Biocare multi-unit abutments. 4: Contraindications include but are not limited to: uncontrolled parafunctional habits (e.g. bruxing, clenching, gnawing), insufficient height and/or width of bone, insufficient interarch space, intraoral infection, poor or noncompliant patient oral hygiene. Implant Direct’s Custom Laboratory Prosthetics have not been evaluated for safety and compatibility in the MR environment. Implant Direct’s Custom Laboratory Prosthetics have not been tested for heating or migration in the MR environment and they are not represented to be “non-pyrogenic.” 5: Customization Parameters 5.1: Custom bars cannot be produced for cases in which implant divergence is greater than 40 degrees. 5.2: Custom abutments cannot be produced for angle corrections greater than 30° from the long axis of the implant starting no greater than 3mm above the interface. Custom abutment must have a post height of at least 4mm; the contours and dimensions must be within the parameters of our preset blanks. Blank sizes vary according to interfaces type and size. Custom abutments are covered by our 5 year limited warranty. 6: Materials: Custom Bars are made of titanium alloy (6Al-4V ELI). Custom Abutments are made of titanium alloy (6Al-4V ELI) and/or Sintered Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2)

7: Single-Use Packaging: This device is designed for Single Use Only and re-use should not be attempted. Custom products are designed for each individual patient as prescribed and should only be used for treatment of that patient. 8: Packaging: All Custom Abutments and Bars are cleaned and are packaged in a non-cleanroom environment. All Custom Laboratory Prosthetics are supplied non-sterile. Sterilization is required for all prosthetic components prior to being used intraorally. 9: Sterilization of non-sterile prosthetic components: Steam autoclave titanium parts and plastic components for 30 minutes minimum at 121째 C (250째 F), 15-20 psig. Autoclave operation times vary from unit to unit. Multiple piece products should be disassembled to individual components prior to sterilization. 10: Insertion Procedures: 10.1: Patient Information: Peel off removable label from the package and place in the patient/case records. 10.2: Bar Insertion Procedure. 10.2.1: Remove Bar & Screws from Packaging: All bars are packaged in a protective, plastic case.
