A Story of Design, Development and Ingenuity
White Paper by Dr. Jerry Clark, DDS, MS
Since the introduction of the In-Ovation R bracket over a decade ago, other manufacturers have been unsuccessful in their attempts to improve on its form, fit, and functionality until now.
Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics, the leader in orthodontic brackets, has taken a quantum leap forward with the new In-Ovation X bracket system. The project started with GAC assembling a group of noted orthodontists throughout the world to meet in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, their task was to define clinical design inputs for the “ultimate orthodontic bracket”. The result was the In-Ovation X orthodontic bracket system. Continue reading In-Ovation® X: A Story of Design, Development and Ingenuity
In-Ovation® X Self-Ligating Metal Bracket Design Features and Advantages
White Paper by Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics Research & Development Team
To highlight the advantages of In-Ovation X in comparison to other self-ligating brackets in terms of:
1) Calculus interference
2) Clip Retention
3) Reduced Overall Bracket profile
Metal self-ligating brackets have become progressively favorable in orthodontic treatment due to their efficiency in treatment and advantages realized by both the clinician and patient. Various aspects of self-ligating brackets have been studied in order to evaluate their function and properties.

Designed by You
When you make the most successful self-ligating bracket, GAC has set the bar pretty high. But that’s the challenge of innovation. Taking the best in class and taking it to the next level.
We spoke to orthodontic professionals across eight countries in three continents. It was a thought-provoking process that revealed more than 100 individual items that were important to the clinicians we spoke with. After the information was collected and collated, we analyzed our findings point by point. This enabled us to hone in on the design elements that the orthodontic community thought were most important. Ultimately, 3 key ideas were identified.
