The Damon Ultima System provides faster, more precise finishing by enabling earlier, more accurate control of rotation, angulation, and torque, according to the company. This full-expression orthodontic system has been re-engineered to integrate round-sided rectangular wires and parallelogram-shaped bracket slots, nearly eliminating slot play. The ability to apply lighter forces promotes patient comfort. Neutral, retrocline, and procline options are available for torque control; larger archwires and different materials can be ordered for more difficult cases.

The Molar Media Mount plus HoverShield attaches directly to a dental light to support either a tablet device (sold separately) or a clear acrylic splatter barrier (included). According to the manufacturer, a standard tablet weighing less than 16oz can easily be attached to the 20" aluminum arm using a ball-and-socket assembly. The tablet can then be positioned in the patient’s view for entertainment or education. When splatter protection is needed, the 12" × 12" HoverShield can be mounted instead.
