Discover our latest doctor-inspired innovations
Ormco is excited to announce Spark Release 14 which includes a host of doctor-inspired innovations designed to increase efficiencies while allowing for even more flexibility and control.
“Ormco has a legacy of continuous, doctor-inspired innovation. And it shows in this new release. As an Ormco insider, I can attest to the fact that Spark is listening to us doctors. Each release is designed to make our lives better, to give us better patient care, and improve our patient interaction to help us with efficiency. I am thrilled with the direction that we’re going together.” – Dr. Jeff Summers
Spark Approver Web
Supported by Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, the new web-based version of Spark Approver works on any Internet-connected computer, with no software installation or updates required. With Spark Approver Web, doctors now can easily save patient files securely in the cloud to access or modify them anywhere and anytime.
Spark Approver Software Updates
- Passive Aligner Editing feature allows doctors to add or change the number of passive aligners and instantly approve a case.
- TruRoot CBCT Collision Alert system supports more predictable treatment by automatically highlighting root surface areas that touch or penetrate cortical bone.
- Updated Web Scan Hold Resolution allows for accurate visualization of the actual trimline in Spark Approver and serves up detailed information for quick resolution of issues and minimized scan-matching errors.
“Ormco and Spark are constantly improving the Spark Approver software. With the TruRoot Collision Alert System, I can now plan a patient’s treatment with a better understanding of where the roots are in the bone especially in relationship to the cortical plate,” explains Dr. Richard Lee. “This allows me as a provider to plan cases better and have more practical, tailored aligners for my patients.”*
Optimized open platform with seamless DEXIS IOS integration
The optimized open platform now seamlessly integrates Spark and DEXIS IOS Solution, allowing practitioners to capture patient information with one click and making it easier to submit aligners. New cases are automatically created on the Spark DTX portal, giving doctors quick access to STL files and enabling them to launch the Spark Approver software directly from their browsers.
Flexibility in material choice
Doctors also now have the option to select TruGEN™ or TruGEN XR™ on all primary Spark product orders. Both TruGEN materials offer the same advanced force retention, clarity, stain resistance, and material thickness that orthodontists prefer. With its added rigidity and higher initial force, TruGENXR offers an ideal material choice for expansion and finishing movements.*
Integrated Hooks update
Winning 2nd place in the first-ever New Products Showcase Award at the 2023 AAO conference, Spark Aligner’s Integrated Hooks feature continues to provide the durability and versatility doctors need for a wide range of aligner treatments, including heavy-weight options. Integrated Hooks now also offers enhanced patient comfort and esthetics with three retention attachment sizes (small, medium, and large).
