Inspire ICE™

Clear ceramic brackets by Ormco Corporation

pp_600x300_ormcoWithin the past several years, the orthodontic industry has witnessed a notable increase in the demand for esthetic, yet effective, treatment options. Extending beyond the teen patient demographic, the numbers indicate that adults undergoing treatment account for 22% of all orthodontic cases — that’s more than one in every five patients.

With vast potential to treat adults, doctors have an opportunity to significantly grow their practices by promoting esthetic appliances that appeal to adult consumers. Fixed appliances have long been favored by clinicians focused on treatment excellence and efficiency. Furthermore, advancements in ceramic processing have resulted in more durable brackets that are easy and safe to bond and debond.

The brackets are a patient
favorite for their efficient,
reliable performance
and esthetic look.

Ormco has been leading the industry with innovations for over 50 years and pioneered developments in ceramic technologies for decades. The combination of material and processing in Ormco’s Inspire ICE™ brackets provides doctors with bracket strength to meet the treatment flexibility they require, while also offering esthetically conscious patients a discreet option that can eliminate the compromises and compliance that accompany alternative methods.

Inspire ICE brackets utilize proprietary heat-treating technology, which produces low-profile, crystal clear brackets that are two times stronger than the competition.1 The strong dependable tie-wings feature ample undercuts for double-tying, and the unique manufacturing process ensures a smooth surface and rounded facial contours for patient comfort. Similarly, with its small design and translucent appearance, the brackets are a patient favorite for their efficient, reliable performance and esthetic look.

Additional features of the Inspire ICE brackets include:

  • Crystal clear — Unlike many ceramic brackets that are opaque, Inspire ICE brackets are crystal clear and virtually invisible regardless of tooth shade. For patients seeking a true esthetic solution, Inspire ICE is a completely transparent bracket with uncompromising results.
  • Easy to bond and debond — Inspire ICE utilizes Ormco’s proprietary ball-base technology, which ensures mechanical retention during bonding and is designed to reduce the force required to debond. The simplified debonding procedure ensures that brackets come off easily and consistently without destroying the bracket.
  • Maximum tie-wing strength — Ormco’s heat-treatment technology produces brackets that are twice as resistant to breakage as other ceramic appliances.1 In addition, this true twin bracket sports ample area under the tie-wings for easy ligation.
  • Accurate bracket placement — Inspire ICE’s rhomboid shape, tooth-specific pad contours, and unique Face Paint™ system for bracket-to-tooth contrast provide fast, accurate bracket placement.
