Spark™ Aligners Receive FDA Clearance For Orthodontic Treatment Of Kids, Giving Parents A New Option With Significant Treatment Advantages Over The Leading Competitor

— Newest Doctor-Directed Clear Aligner System For Straightening Teeth Now Treats Younger Patients with Both Primary & Secondary Teeth with Simple to Complex Orthodontic Issues —

BREA, Calif., June 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Ormco Corporation, a global leader of orthodontic solutions, today announced it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for the use of its Spark™ Clear Aligner System for orthodontic treatment in patients with both primary and secondary teeth (mixed dentition), providing the green light for orthodontists to treat their younger patients who can benefit from clear aligner therapy.

Spark for Kids & Teens II

Designed to fit the lifestyle of today’s active kids and teens, Spark Clear Aligners are now one of the few brands approved by the FDA to safely and effectively treat younger patients with cases that range from simple to more complex. Spark Aligners are a doctor-directed treatment option that is clearer, more comfortable, and stains less than the leading aligner brand. In fact, 96% of patients prefer Spark Clear Aligners to the leading brand based on clarity and comfort.1 Spark Aligners have created thousands of healthy smiles worldwide since 2019.

Spark for Kids & Teens I“My son and I have been so happy with his experience using Spark Aligners,” said Mrs. Strecker, a parent of a 9-year-old who needed treatment for spacing as well as AP correction. “Our orthodontist recommended Spark because he achieved outstanding results with other patients and told us the material used in Spark Aligners would be the clearest option while also being more comfortable than the leading competitive alternative. Because people could barely notice he was wearing aligners, my son felt confident during his entire treatment. We saw his smile change dramatically in about 3 months and treatment completion with a beautiful smile in 5 months. We are big Spark fans!”

Spark Aligners are made with TruGENTM material, the latest innovation in proprietary branded aligner material. TruGEN resists stains better and is even clearer than the leading aligner material. The edges are polished and smoother to avoid the occasional discomfort that can result from other aligner brands. Unlike online or at-home aligner products that eliminate the important role of the orthodontic specialist, Spark Aligners involve an experienced doctor in every aspect of treatment.

Spark Aligner Competitive Comparisons “My practice has been impressed with the results we are achieving for our patients with Spark Aligners,” said Dr. Bill Dischinger* of Dischinger Team Orthodontics. “The TruGEN material from which the aligners are made delivers better surface contact providing faster and more reliable tooth movements. With Spark Aligners, we’re seeing stronger and more predictable outcomes than we’ve achieved with other aligners, so the expanded indication of usage is great news for my younger patients who lead busy lifestyles filled with sports, music and other activities. My entire team and our patients are thrilled with the efficient, reliable treatment experience that Spark Aligners deliver.”

Doctors worldwide have successfully used Spark Aligners to treat a wide variety of patient orthodontic issues including open bite, deep bite, overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowding, spacing, semi-erupted teeth and extractions.

Spark logo “Spark Aligners were made in collaboration with leading orthodontists. This along with TruGEN™, the most advanced material available, ensures a better treatment experience for patients,” said Sheila Tan, Vice President of Global Marketing & Clinical Education. “We are delighted with the FDA clearance to expand our treatment options to include kids and teens. Now Spark Aligners can be used to treat young children that do not have all of their permanent teeth.”
