ORANGE, Calif. (March 5, 2018)—Ormco™ Corporation, a leading manufacturer and provider of advanced orthodontic technology and services, today announced the next generation of aesthetically-pleasing ceramic twin brackets: Symetri™ Clear. Adding to Ormco’s expansive product portfolio of both lingual and self-ligating bracket systems, Symetri Clear is a refined, aesthetic bracket system incorporating design features that apply expert clinical advice and analysis, end-user feedback and technological advancements and achievements of the Company.
“Over the past 30 years, ceramic materials have evolved to bring more sophistication to manufacturing capabilities, and to deliver an appearance that meets the aesthetic interests of patients. Ormco has been keen on developing proprietary technologies and manufacturing products that leverage the advancements in materials, and also serve clinical demands,” said Matt Turner, president of Ormco. “Backed by over seven years of research and development, we’re pleased to bring our latest innovation, Symetri Clear, to the conventional twin market.”
Boasting a low profile and ample torque and tie-wing strength, Symetri Clear addresses and minimizes the challenges that may come with leveraging a ceramic system—bracket breakage, wire notching and difficulties while debonding. Symetri Clear is designed to debond in one piece without fracturing requiring minimal forces. Initially offered in the McLaughlin, Bennett, Trevisi* prescription, Symetri Clear was designed with upwards of seven years of dedicated research and development, focusing on clinical analysis, end-user feedback and Ormco’s proprietary development of technological advancements in ceramics. Serving the needs of doctors and patients, the twin bracket is designed with round surfaces and edges, creating enhanced patient comfort and greater radii on sliding surfaces.
Combining state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and the latest in ceramic materials, Symetri Clear provides the benefit of aesthetics and offers easy, non-destructive, single-piece debonding. Its noteworthy clinical features include:
