Ormco™

The Damon Ultima System “lets the wires do the work.” Read about this first true full-expression orthodontic system with a proprietary integrated wire and slot.

The Damon Ultima™ System

Ormco™ Corporation has launched a completely reengineered passive self-ligation brace system. The new Damon Ultima™ System is the first true full-expression orthodontic system with a proprietary integrated wire and slot that is designed 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.

The Damon Ultima System is completely reengineered with a unique round-sided rectangular wire and a parallelogram-shaped slot

In fact, the Damon Ultima System is designed to reduce wire bends throughout treatment. With this system, rotations are completed with the first round-sided rectangular wire, and full expression is achieved with the second. Results of the Ultima™ Clinical Evaluation* concluded that by engaging the buccal-lingual depth of the PSL bracket slot, the Damon Ultima .014 x .0275’’ round-sided, rectangular CuNiTi wires effectively achieved correction of first-order tooth rotations. 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. It predictably achieves first-order control earlier in treatment with minimal wire or bracket position adjustments, increases clinical efficiency, and has the potential to reduce treatment time in patients treated with this PSL appliance system.

Designed to eliminate play

The Damon Ultima System is completely reengineered with a unique round-sided rectangular wire and a parallelogram-shaped slot that are designed to fit together precisely to virtually eliminate play. This proprietary wire engages the buccal lingual (horizontal) contact points in the slot earlier in treatment for rotational control. Vertical contacts in the slot are designed to achieve angulation control earlier while maintaining rotational control. As a result, the orthodontist gains precise control to move teeth more efficiently and reliably with gentler forces to help them finish faster with better patient comfort and a priority on patient health.* With the Damon Ultima System, the key is to let the wires do the work as it is designed to reduce wire bends. It’s simple to remember “no deflection, no correction.”

Options for enhanced torque control

The Damon Ultima brackets are available in the neutral, retrocline, and procline options for enhanced torque control. Brackets are designed from the center point of the slot to line up with the FA point to express the desired torque and provide easier and more precise placement. Larger size and different material Damon Ultima archwires are available for more torque control when needed.

The Damon Ultima™ System is the first true full-expression orthodontic system.
