Spark™ Aligners are manufactured by Ormco™ — a global leader in innovative orthodontic products with more than 60 years of expertise, R&D, and high manufacturing standards. Ormco has helped doctors treat more than 20 million patients in more than 140 countries.

Spark’s ApproverTM software is designed to give doctors more control and flexibility, while Spark’s advanced aligner technology and TruGEN™ material enable more sustained force retention* and better surface contact with the tooth*. Spark Aligners are also clearer, more comfortable, and stain less than the leading aligner brand*, and have smoother, polished edges for enhanced patient comfort.* These features may explain why 100% of patients recently surveyed said they would recommend Spark Aligners to a friend.*

Force retention, surface contact, and manufacturing technology

Spark’s TruGEN™ material provides more sustained force retention* and improved contact surface compared with the leading aligner brand.* When touching the same tooth, Spark Aligners have 19% better surface contact than the leading aligner brand.*

The superior force retention and surface contact of the Spark aligner is due to its manufacturing technology. Spark Aligners are made with 80%* better printing resolution and a more uniform surface texture than the leading aligner brand.*

Finishing, refinements, and attachment bonding

TruGEN XR™, Spark’s new, more rigid material, is optimally designed for finishing and refinements.* TruGEN XR™ is equivalent to the finishing wire option of traditional braces* and is available for all refinements at no additional charge.

Doctors can obtain results without resorting to optimised attachments. Spark’s bevelled attachments conform to a patient’s oral anatomy, matching the surface of each tooth for a more uniform attachment surface.*

In addition, according to study results published in Applied Sciences MDPI, the Spark™ Aligners attachment template was 3X more effective than the leading competitor’s attachment template in preventing attachment bonding failures:** 5% of Spark Aligners patients had NO attachment bonding failures versus only 27.5% on patients using the leading aligner competitor.**

This randomised controlled trial concluded that the Spark™ template is more effective in transferring attachments to the tooth surface than the leading aligner brand’s template, resulting in less time and effort in removal and cleanup.**

Powerful ApproverTM software for better control and workflow

Spark’s proprietary Approver software is designed to give doctors start-to-finish control for more efficient and effective treatment planning. CBCT integration lets doctors import and visualise CBCT patient data,* request multiple treatment plans and compare them,* while Posterior Bite Turbos can be added to address complex cases.*

Spark Approver software can also benefit practice workflow. Doctors may select their preferred scanner, remote monitoring and virtual consult services.

Treating younger patients

Spark Aligners also give doctors added support in treating younger patients with mixed dentition.* Spark Approver software is designed to improve treatment of interceptive cases.* Spark Approver software technicians are trained in established Spark clinical protocols for Kids and Teens to help ensure proper arch development for erupted and ectopic teeth.

The Spark Clear Aligner System is setting a new benchmark in clear aligners now and for the future. Learn more about Spark Aligners at Ormco.com/Spark or by calling 1800 023 603.
