OrVance, a Grand Rapids-based developer of proprietary oral care products has launched OrVance® Aligner Pontics, a product that has already been well embraced by leading orthodontic practices and their patients. According to the company, OrVance® Aligner Pontics is the first solution that is designed for fast and easy use by the patient and saves substantial time and costs to the practice.
The company said that beta testing during product development reported very high satisfaction from both practices and patients for the material and its packaging. The product comes in hygienic single-use applications and is made from a permanently pliable medical grade silicone with food-safe colorants in the Vita Shade range of A2–D2.
According to Mart McClellan, an orthodontist in Kenilworth Illinois, “OrVance® Aligner Pontics is a game-changer on many levels. The material itself offers a very realistic appearance in tooth color, texture, and translucence and is very pliable and easy for the patient to use. With its hygienic and convenient packaging, my patients easily apply the pontic in a tray in less than 10 seconds. What’s so unique about this product is that the permanently pliable material sticks in the tray and self-molds perfectly against the gingival tissue and adjacent teeth. My staff and my patients love this product.”
