ORANGE, Calif. (May 2, 2019)—Ormco Corporation, a leading provider of advanced orthodontic technology, today announced it will preview Spark Clear Aligner System, a new entry to the clear aligner category at the American Academy of Orthodontics (AAO) annual meeting in Los Angeles, May 3rd-7th, in advance of its upcoming U.S. launch. Ormco will feature its most innovative product lineup in years, introducing SmartArch, an archwire designed to enable clinicians to move into a finishing wire after just two wires; Symetri Clear, an advanced aesthetic ceramic bracket designed for refined strength, patient comfort and easy debonding without fracturing; and Damon Q2, the leading passive self-ligating (PSL) bracket, with 2x rotation control for optimal precision, predictability and efficiency. With nearly 60 years of research and product innovation and more than 1,000 patents, Ormco has helped doctors transform more than 20 million smiles in more than 130 countries.

“Our dedication to addressing doctors’ and patients’ needs inspired each of these products. Our new advanced Spark Clear Aligner System, as well as new wires and brackets, will help doctors achieve more predictable treatment outcomes and practice efficiency,” said Sheila Tan, vice president of marketing and global innovation.

Spark™ Clear Aligner System

With nearly six decades of orthodontic expertise, Ormco has created the new advanced Spark clear aligner that is designed to meet the needs of the orthodontist. Spark’s TruGENmaterial is designed to provide advanced force retention, be nearly clear, and enhance patient comfort with polished edges. Interviews with orthodontists worldwide indicated that they like the flexibility of the 3D ApproverSoftware which shows both root and crown movement and allows customization of attachments.

“The concierge-like onboarding experience and intuitive Approver software far exceeded my expectations. I also observed enthusiastic reactions from patients who compared Spark to other leading aligners,” said Dr. Bill Dischinger.* “The Spark Aligner System is a clear winner!”

“We designed Spark to meet the needs of orthodontists and were very fortunate to have a worldwide group of specialists partner with us to develop this new product,” said Rick Matty, vice president and general manager, Ormco Digital Solutions. “Their collaboration resulted in a product that is designed to be highly capable, measurably differentiated and that integrates seamlessly into their practices. Feedback from our early users contin they are achieving excellent clinical results for their patients.”
