Ormco Releases Ultima Repositionable Hook


The new hook can be repositioned up to 3 times.

Ormco Ultima Repositionable Hooks

Orthodontic product company, Ormco Corporation has launched Ultima™ Hook, explicitly developed for the Ultima wire. It is engineered to correct maloccluded teeth in conjunction with orthodontic appliances, providing performance and efficiency.

The Ultima Hooks are said to be the only repositionable hooks on the market, repositionable up to 3 times. It can be pre-placed on the wire, which is said to save clinicians and staff time, and it can also be placed flush with the bracket.

The hook is made from NiTi, which is designed to provide super elastic properties (shape memory). The Ultima Hook is the latest in advancements of the Damon Ultima™ System. Its 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. This design is said to offer orthodontists more precise control to move teeth more efficiently with fewer forces for faster finish times and overall patient comfort.
