Types of Braces
The 3M Unitek SmartClip™ is a self-ligating appliance system. This unique bracket system uses sliding-door technology known as “self-ligation” that allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient.
Advantages of the SmartClip™
- SmartClip™ braces are easier to clean
- No need for elastic ties which may stain
- Appointments are shorter and patients may even have fewer visits
- And because your teeth can move into position more efficiently, your overall treatment time may be shortened too versus traditional braces
