SPARK aligners — the world’s leading aligner brand — have taken the world of orthodontics by storm! With 60 years of experience working toward achieving perfect smiles, Ormco Corporation is revolutionizing our understanding of clear aligners and their aesthetic/health benefits. Their biggest hit to date — SPARK clear aligners — is quickly becoming a household name in the industry, even challenging established giants like Invisalign!
What is the secret of SPARK’s phenomenal success? Innovation. Over the recent years, Ormco has uncovered new ways to improve the clear aligner experience. The result? A smoother, more comfortable treatment experience for scores of delighted customers!
But the journey to perfection knows no end. Last November, Ormco Corporation announced the release of their new SPARK clear aligners Release 13, a giant leap toward providing the ultimate clear aligner experience. With its proprietary Integrated Hooks, CBCT TruRoot™ Feature, and Real-Time Approval in the Spark Approver Software, Release 13 is set to dominate the market in 2023!
How SPARK Aligners are Revolutionizing the World of Orthodontics!
SPARK aligners have become our clear retainer of choice here at Patuxent Orthodontics! Made with the latest innovations in clear aligner material, TruGEN, SPARK aligners have taken the concepts of comfort, durability, and stain resistance to a whole new level.
The revolutionary material helps SPARK aligners overcome their competition through:
- Clarity: SPARK’s next-generation material is clearer and more stain-resistant than its competitors.
- Superior tooth contact: SPARK aligners use 3d prints to ensure a perfectly calibrated product. The superior tooth contact allows for constant pressure and advanced sustained force retention.
- Polished, hand-trimmed edges: The contact between the aligner and the oral cavity tissue is minimized — ideal for patients with sensitivities or allergies!
The SPARK™ Clear Aligners Release 13 is Here!
The SPARK Clear Aligners Release 13 comes with three innovations set to take the world of clear aligners by storm: Integrated Hooks, the CBCT TruRoot™ Feature, and Real-Time Approval in the SPARK Approver Software!
1. Integrated Hooks
The first staple of the new SPARK clear aligners is the proprietary Integrated Hooks, an innovative approach designed to replace the standard hook or button elastic cutouts. Unlike the latter — known for their proneness to bending and breaking — SPARK’s Integrated Hooks are sturdy enough to last throughout the treatment plan. This feature makes Integrated Hooks ideal for Class II, Class III, and gummy smile corrections!
2. The TruRoot Feature
The newest TruRoot Feature allows providers to update the library roots in the SPARK Approver Software with the patient’s actual root shape as captured on the cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan, resulting in a more thorough root visualization and treatment plan. The software will use pink to differentiate between the library roots and the patient’s, although each provider can easily customize the color code!
3. Real-Time Approval
The newest TruRoot Feature allows providers to update the library roots in the SPARK Approver Software with the patient’s actual root shape as captured on the cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan, resulting in a more thorough root visualization and treatment plan. The software uses pink to differentiate between the library roots and the patient’s, although each provider can easily customize the color code!
