• New TruGen XR
: A new proprietary material option for a more rigid design for doctors for finishing and refinements. Doctors now have a “finishing wire material” that allows them to progress from a flexible material at the start of treatment to a more rigid material. This new material option gives doctors more control and better predictability with the finishing details of a case and is on par with the finishing wire option doctors have with traditional braces. TruGen XR has the same advanced force retention, clarity, stain resistance and material thickness as TruGen.
• New posterior bite turbos
: Integrated into Spark aligners, posterior bite turbos can now be added during treatment planning for more complex cases. They are aesthetic, comfortable, durable and sturdy. Posterior bite turbos are laboratory tested to withstand grinding and compression without cracking or breaking and do not require any bonding or composite filling. They have the equivalent clinical effects of traditional resin bite turbos.
“I have used this new feature in clinical trials in a number of cases and have seen amazing effects, particularly in the intrusion of maxillary molars,” said Dr. Bill Dischinger, Dischinger Orthodontics.
Like traditional resin bite turbos, posterior bite turbos are designed to assist with molar intrusion for correction of an anterior open bite, correction of crossbite, or any other clinical condition which requires bite opening in the posterior during treatment.
• New CBCT integration
: Orthodontists can now import and visualize CBCT patient data (DICOM files) within the Spark Approver Software. CBCT data is automatically aligned with the 3D model in the software. Visualizing the cortical bones can help doctors properly plan and more effectively predict tooth movement. Visualizing teeth within a 3D view of the facial structure can also help doctors with treatment planning to create beautiful facial aesthetics.
- New multiple treatment plans
: Spark now enables doctors to seamlessly request multiple treatment plans and compare them more efficiently at the same time in the Approver software. This new feature provides the ideal setup for more efficient and effective treatment planning.
- New group practice support
: The Spark Case Portal now supports multiple doctors within a group practice.
- Easier photo uploads
: Case submissions offer an improved user experience compared to the prior version through drag-and-drop photo uploads and background reference images.
- Now in six languages
: The Spark Approver software and Case Portal are now available in six languages, including French, German, Italian, Spanish and Simplified Chinese. The expanded global language support is designed to help doctors gain efficiencies for the rapidly growing network of Spark doctors worldwide.
