Grand Rapids, Michigan, December 6, 2017 – OrVance has launched OrthoDots CLEAR, which now has the highly desired benefit of being transparent. Its flagship product OrthoDots was launched back in 2015 as a more effective solution than traditional dental wax. OrthoDots was the first product to combine a proprietary moisture activated adhesive with a medical grade silicone for a longer lasting and more comfortable solution.
“In less than 6 months, our previous generation of OrthoDots quickly became an Amazon Choice product as the #1 alternative to traditional dental wax, so we know there is a high patient demand out there for something better than dental wax,” said Ron Schutt, President of OrVance. “And when we asked our customers what we could do to make the product even better, the overwhelming feedback was that they also wanted a more transparent solution. OrthoDots CLEAR solves that problem and is now at least 17 times more transparent than the leading dental wax products on the market.”
Dr. Mike Silver, Director of Technical Affairs and R&D for OrVance, added, “We’ve always had transparency identified as an ideal feature, but it presented a substantial R&D challenge to provide a transparent solution while also achieving the goal of sticking and staying in place better than traditional dental wax. But because of the high-demand from our customers, we went back into the lab and figured it out. With OrthoDots CLEAR, we now have the best solution on the market for all the top features patients desire: It sticks onto wet surfaces and stays in place, is the most malleable & comfortable product on the market, and is now also transparent.”
“We all know that more invisible treatment options are a major trend in our industry due to the demand from our patients for more aesthetically pleasing treatment solutions,” said Dr. Eric Hannapel, practicing Orthodontist and Co-Founder of OrVance. “Now that OrthoDots are also transparent, we’re confident that more practices will switch to OrthoDots CLEAR from traditional dental wax to maximize patient comfort and satisfaction.”
