Unlike ceramic brackets that are opaque and colored to mimic a particular tooth shade, Inspire ICE™ brackets are crystal clear and virtually disappear regardless of tooth shade. The only completely transparent bracket on the market, Inspire ICE is the only true aesthetic solution for ALL patients.
Easy to debond
Inspire Ice utilizes Ormco’s patented ball-base technology, which reduces the force required to debond. A simplified debonding procedure ensures that brackets come off easily and consistently — simply engage the Inspire ICE debonding instrument under the tie-wing area and pivot the instrument toward the occlusal/incisal edge.
Maximum tie-wing strength
Advances in heat-treatment technology allow us to produce brackets that are twice as resistant to breakage than other ceramic appliances. Torque strength is nearly three times that of other ceramic brackets such as Clarity™†.
Smooth and comfortable
Inspire ICE is the lowest profile ceramic bracket on the market and is manufactured with an innovative boron tumbling process that provides a smooth surface and rounded facial contours to greatly enhance patient comfort.
Excellent sliding mechanics – without a metal slot
Inspire ICE has an ultra-smooth, heat-polished surface that dramatically reduces friction. Laboratory tests prove the frictional resistance of Inspire ICE to be better than ceramic brackets with a metal slot insert. Note: Testing performed with .017 x .025 Copper Ni-Ti® archwire in .018 slot brackets.
