Ormco launches passive self-ligation braces

Katherine E. Pfaff

Orthodontic product company, Ormco Corporation, has engineered a new braces system that provides the orthodontist with better control of rotation, angling, and torque. The new system, Damon Ultima, uses a new bracket and wire system to create complete expression as well as the ability to increase speed and precision.

According to a study sponsored by Ormco, the majority of patients (98.8% of 133 patients at 8 US orthodontic offices) reported early control of rotation. The patented system has a rectangular wire with round sides, which fits into a slot in the bracket, eliminating shifting. The precise design equates to better control and results. 

"We are thrilled with the technological breakthroughs made in developing the Damon Ultima System as part of our commitment to helping orthodontists resolve wire-bracket slop issue that they have been working around for decades," said Jeff Kappler, Ormco president and SVP of Envista Holdings Corporation. "Orthodontists can now achieve earlier precise control with rotations completed in the first Damon Ultima round-sided rectangular wire and full expression with the second Damon Ultima wire with lighter forces.
