Repositionable Up to Three Times Allowing for Flush Placement Against the Bracket

BREA, Calif., May 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ormco Corporation, a global leader and innovator of orthodontic products and solutions, launches Ultima™ Hook, the first and only repositionable hook developed specifically for the Ultima wire. Designed and engineered to correct maloccluded teeth in conjunction with orthodontic appliances, providing performance and efficiency.

  • Ultima Hooks are the ONLY repositionable hooks on the market today - up to 3 times
  • Ultima Hooks are pre-placed on the wire saving time for clinicians and staff
  • Can be placed flush to the bracket
  • ONLY hook truly designed for the Ultima wire
  • Made from NiTi which provides super elastic properties (shape memory)

"Our commitment to making technological breakthroughs to assist orthodontists and provide the best care for their patients has never wavered. Offering the first and only repositionable hook on the market today, we are thrilled to give our doctors another weapon in their arsenal. The advanced design of the Ultima Hook simplifies the treatment process for our orthodontists," said Joe Glauberman, senior global product manager of Ormco. "These preplaced hooks on Damon™ and Ultima™ arch wires can be easily slid into position, allowing doctors to save on their investment through efficiencies," he continued.

The Ultima Hook is the latest in advancements of the Damon Ultima™ System, brought to you by a world leader in orthodontics with 60 years of innovation and over 20 million smiles created. The snap-fit hooks are placed onto the arch wire intraorally and can be placed flush against the bracket. A supporting 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 less forces for faster finish times and overall better patient comfort.

"I am thrilled with the design and performance of the Hook and instrument allowing a simple slide into place on the pre-placed wire. The first time I used the new hook system I was amazed with the precise and secure positioning and repositioning abilities," said Dr. Stuart Frost. "Not only am I saving on inventory space, the value add is incredible because the hook is able to be repositioned up to three times. With pre-placement of the hook and all elastic procedures being patient controlled, appointment time for myself and staff is greatly reduced, saving my practice revenue," he continued.
