The repositionable hook designed for use with the Ultima wire to correct maloccluded teeth when used with orthodontic appliances.
Ormco Corporation has launched the Ultima Hook, a repositionable hook developed specifically for the Ultima wire.
Ultima is designed to correct maloccluded teeth in conjunction with orthodontic appliances, providing performance and efficiency.
“Offering the first and only repositionable hook on the market today, we are thrilled to give our doctors another weapon in their arsenal,” said Joe Glauberman, senior global product manager of Ormco. “The advanced design of the Ultima Hook simplifies the treatment process for our orthodontists.”
The preplaced hooks on Damon and Ultima arch wires can be easily slid into position, allowing doctors to be more efficient. The hooks are made from NiTi, providing superelastic properties and shaping memory.
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 hook can be repositioned up to three times.
It was designed specifically for the Damon Ultima System Wire. The Damon Ultima System gives orthodontists more precise control to move teeth more efficiently with less force for faster finish times and overall better patient comfort.
