RMO Presents Revolutionary Aligner System at AAO Annual Session
RMO Demonstrates Orthocaps® Aligners to North American Orthodontic Market

DENVER, April 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Rocky Mountain Orthodontics (RMO), an innovator of quality orthodontic products and services since 1933, will demonstrate Orthocaps® aligners at booth 2201 at the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) Annual Session in Los Angeles May 4-7, 2019. AAO is the largest meeting of orthodontic professionals in North America.

Orthocaps® aligners, to be presented at the RMO booth at AAO, have outstanding clarity, fit and finish.

"The aligner market has changed rapidly in the past few years, but there is a superior solution that has arisen and Orthocaps® represents what we feel is the most technologically-advanced system that delivers impressive results, patient comfort and great aesthetics," says RMO Chairman and CEO Tony Zakhem.  

An innovative dual-layer polymer delivers a soft inner tray for better grip and a firm outer tray for better force application. Unlike other aligner systems, Orthocaps® uses a daytime aligner for comfort and aesthetics, and a nighttime aligner for force-level customization and improved treatment efficiency. This creates less material stress, is more hygienic and reduces tray replacement costs.

The digitized iSetup® is a virtual model that meets treatment preferences, ensuring accuracy and correct treatment plans, eliminating the time-consuming "back and forth" doctors experience with other aligner setups. Unlike other aligners, the thermoforming process creates a precise patient-specific tray that is more comfortable and transparent.

Orthocaps® aligners, manufactured by Ortho Caps GmbH, in Hamm, Germany, are exclusively distributed in the United States and Canada through RMO. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) cleared Orthocaps® to be marketed in the U.S. late last year. More than 16,000 successful cases have been completed worldwide to date.
