In-Ovation® X Self-Ligating Brackets

Designed by you...

When GAC made the most successful self-ligating bracket, they set the bar pretty high. But that’s the challenge of innovation. Taking the best in class and taking it to the next level. That's why 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, 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:

  • You wanted a lower profile bracket, especially in the anterior region, that maintained the interactive properties and straight wire principles.
  • You wanted a robust clip, strong enough to maintain integrity through the entire course of treatment.
  • You wanted a clip that was easy to work with. One that included a hole on the facial surface for a simple opening method and designed to mitigate calculus interference with the opening mechanism.

...developed by us

With decades of self-ligation expertise, proven clinical results and industry leadership, GAC embarked on the development journey. With these ideas in mind, we challenged our R&D team and engineers to design the next generation In-Ovation bracket.

After meticulous sessions of design and testing validation (including a rigorous clinical trial), we arrived at our destination— the new In-Ovation X self-ligating system.

Unmatched manufacturing precision

In-Ovation X brackets are engineered and manufactured in our state-of-the-art facility in Sarasota, Florida, using the latest in digital robotics and automation. This enables us to refine critical performance requirements and to increase the level of predictable treatment outcomes for our customers.

Manufactured using the latest in digital robotics.

Precision-tuned angulation and torque for improved control.
