AMERICA, MEET SPARK: THE NEW, CLEARER, MORE COMFORTABLE, DOCTOR-DIRECTED ALIGNER TREATMENT

SPARK Offers the Latest Advancements in Clear Aligners and an Experience That is Recommended by 100% of Patients*

Brea, Calif. — December 3, 2020 — Today Ormco Corporation, a global leader of orthodontic solutions, announced the official release of its Spark™ Clear Aligner System in the U.S. Designed to fit the lifestyle of today’s consumers, Spark aligners provide a clearer, more comfortable and highly effective treatment from skilled orthodontic professionals. Spark is recommended by 100% of patients surveyed.*

Spark’s TruGEN™ material is the latest innovation in proprietary branded aligner material. TruGEN resists stain better and is even clearer than the leading aligner material.* It’s almost impossible for someone to notice you’re straightening your teeth with Spark. Spark aligners are also smoother and edges are polished to avoid the occasional discomfort that can result from other brands.

The TruGEN material also delivers better surface contact. This allows aligners to grip teeth better for fast, reliable tooth movements. “With Spark aligners, we’re seeing better and more predictable results than we had achieved with previous aligners. What this means for my patients is a faster, reliable treatment experience and the ability for me to know the outcome will be successful,” said Dr. Bill Dischinger, Dischinger Orthodontics.*

“My Spark treatment experience has far exceeded my expectations in a variety of ways,” said Spark patient, Nick B. “The trays are so clear that people truly do not notice that I’m wearing them, and they’re so comfortable that I forget myself. I noticed a dramatic improvement in my smile after only 4 months, and my smile has never looked better.”*

Unlike online or at-home aligner products that eliminate the important role of regular care from an orthodontic professional, Spark involves a doctor in the guidance and supervision of every aspect of treatment.

“I believe a skilled professional with training in the movement of teeth and jaws should be involved to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment, as well as manage any orthodontic challenges that may arise. Spark was designed with world-renowned orthodontists and the innovative TruGEN™ material to ensure the best possible treatment outcomes. I’m excited that Spark can offer patients a convenient treatment option that fits their lives,” said Sheila Tan, Vice President of Global Marketing.

Doctors worldwide are already using Spark clear aligners to treat a wide variety of patient malocclusions including open bite, deep bite, overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowding, spacing, semi-erupted teeth and extractions. Spark treatment works by creating a series of doctor-prescribed, custom-manufactured, clear plastic, removable aligners that patients wear 22 hours a day to incrementally and consistently move teeth with gentle forces to a more optimal state.
