Driving the future of orthodontics, together

Ormco has been collaborating with orthodontists for more than 60 years to better understand their needs and challenges. When it comes to product innovation, Ormco takes inspiration from the orthodontic experts it serves.

As part of its commitment to driving the future of orthodontics, Ormco continually invests in doctor-inspired innovations. Ormco has more than 1,000 patents worldwide and invests millions of dollars annually in research and development to ensure its products continue to respond to the evolving needs of orthodontists and patients.

The significant investment in research and development has led to a number of industry firsts, breakthrough products and features, including:

  • The Damon Ultima System, a true full-expression system designed for faster and more precise finishing.
  • The new Ultima Hook, a repositionable hook (when using the Ultima Hook Repositioning Instrument).
  • Proprietary ceramic bracket technology and advanced clear bracket design with Symetri Clear.
  • TruRoot for Spark Clear Aligners, which allows doctors to see actual roots in the treatment plan.
  • The OrthoPulse 2.0 light-powered treatment accelerator, which applies low-intensity infrared technology for up to 50% faster treatment time1 and a 73% reduction in pain.2
Along with the Damon Ultima System and Spark Clear Aligners, Ormco’s portfolio includes Titanium Orthos, Symetri Clear, AOA Lab, Mini Twin and OrthoPulse Light Accelerated Orthodontics. (OrthoPulse, a registered trademark of Biolux Technology GmbH, is distributed by Ormco.) As part of the Envista family of companies, Ormco also provides doctors with Dexis IS scanning solutions and Metrex infection prevention solutions.

Orthodontists build a vision for their practices based on what’s best for patients. With Ormco’s diverse portfolio of solutions for every orthodontic need, orthodontists can have the clinical freedom and flexibility to keep growing and uniquely treat patients.

Plus, Ormco partnership extends beyond best-in-class products to encompass a full range of education and practice marketing resources designed to help doctors thrive.
