Important updates on Spark™ Aligners and Ultima™ Hooks

Treatment with Spark Aligners requires an average of 23% less refinements, healthier treatment, and a more comfortable performance. Find out more about the benefits of Ormco technology.

Spark™ Clear Aligner System

Spark’s advanced technology enables more sustained force retention and better surface contact with the tooth compared with the leading aligner brand.* The superior force retention and surface contact of the Spark aligner is due to its material choices and manufacturing technology. Spark Aligners are made with 80% better printing resolution and a more uniform surface texture than the leading aligner brand.*

Independent Dental Monitoring data confirms the advantages of Spark Aligners compared to other clear aligner brands in regards to refinements, treatment time, unseats, and damage during treatment.1

For example, Spark aligner treatments required an average of 23% less refinements compared to other clear aligner brands.

Plus, Spark’s Approver software – available on MAC, PC, and Web — is designed to give orthodontists start-to-finish control for more efficient and effective treatment planning. CBCT integration lets orthodontists import and visualize CBCT patient data, while posterior Bite Turbos can be added to address complex cases.*

Spark’s proprietary CBCT, TruRoot™, and Real Time Approval features
  • Root visualization provided on all cases (not only on those submitted via CBCT)
  • TruRoot™ provides the actual shape and positioning of the roots when doctors provide the CBCT scan. This provides accurate diagnostics of root movements while planning treatment.
  • With the TruRoot CBCT Collision Alert System, you can predict and prevent collisions during treatment to help plan treatments with more precautions. This feature automatically detects and highlights areas on the root surfaces that are touching or penetrating ​cortical bone.​
  • Real Time Approval feature allows doctors to add, modify, or delete aligner features — as well as modify final tooth movement — without the need for change requests.

The Damon Ultima™ System

The Damon Ultima™ System is the first true full expression* orthodontic system with a proprietary integrated wire and slot design that virtually eliminates play for faster and more precise finishing.* It provides orthodontists with earlier and precise control of rotation, angulation, and torque.* This unique and patented technology is designed to deliver the signature Damon™ Smile, resulting in full expression with lighter forces to treat in less time and to fully express your prescription with fewer wire bends.* With this system, 98.9% of cases were determined to have first-order rotations corrected with the first round-sided rectangular wire, and full expression is achieved with the second.* After all rotations are corrected, the wire/bracket interface returns to a passive state while maintaining the desired rotational alignments throughout the remainder of treatment with the .0275” dimension wires.*

Enhanced torque control

Damon Ultima brackets deliver enhanced torque control when used with the procline and retrocline brackets.* The round-sided rectangular wire engages vertical contact points of the procline and retrocline slots to fully express the prescription.*

The Ultima™ Hook – Now available on both Ultima and Rectangular Wires

The Ultima Hook, the only re-positionable hook,2 is designed to save time for doctors who value performance and want to provide patients with healthier3 oral treatment and more comfortable experience.*
