“Our commitment to achieving technological breakthroughs to help orthodontists and provide the best care to their patients has never wavered. Offering the first and only repositionable hook on the market today, we are thrilled to give our doctors a another weapon in their arsenal. The Ultima hook’s advanced design simplifies the treatment process for our orthodontists,” said Joe Glauberman, senior global product manager of Ormco. “These pre-installed hooks on Damon™ and Ultima™ archwires can be easily placed, saving physicians on their investment through efficiencies,” he continued.
The Ultima Hook is the latest advancement in the Damon Ultima™ System, presented by a world leader in orthodontics with 60 years of innovation and over 20 million smiles created. The snap hooks are placed on the arch in the mouth and can be placed flush with the bracket. A support instrument is provided to move the hook along the wire, the only hook designed for the Damon Ultima System Wire. With the unique design of the Damon Ultima System, orthodontists now have more precise control to move teeth more efficiently with fewer forces for faster finishing times and better overall patient comfort.
“I am delighted with the design and performance of the hook and the instrument allowing it to simply slide into place on the pre-placed wire. The first time I used the new hook system I was amazed by precise and safe positioning and repositioning capabilities,” says Dr. Stuart Frost. “Not only am I saving on inventory space, but the added value is incredible as the hook can be repositioned up to three times. With pre-placement of the hook and all patient-controlled elastic procedures, the appointment time for me and staff is significantly reduced which has saved my practice revenue,” he continued.
