Insignia Advanced Smile Design is an orthodontic software and application system that combines 3-D diagnostic technology and interactive treatment planning to deliver a completely customized solution from initial smile design to fabrication of patient-specific aligners, brackets and wires.

"It is an honor to be a winner of this year's American Technology Awards," said Vicente Reynal, President of Ormco. "The orthodontic industry is changing from what it was a decade ago, or even five years ago and we're thrilled to be recognized as a contributor to its advancement. In the age of digital treatment options we believe Insignia is the ideal solution for patients seeking superior clinical outcomes and faster orthodontic treatment with fewer appointments."

Insignia allows orthodontists to provide a true one-of-a-kind smile, as each bracket is reverse engineered to the final smile design. It provides patients with a digital preview of their final smile before starting treatment and the precision bracket placement is proven to reduce treatment time by up to 37 percent. Additionally, Insignia offers the world's most expansive menu of treatment options, including Insignia Clearguide™ Express, Damon® Clear™, Damon Q™, Inspire ICE™, and completely customized self-ligating and traditional twin appliances, making it the natural evolution in appliance choice.
