Having braces doesn't necessarily require highly noticeable metal brackets and wires. In fact, many of today's braces are made from either clear or natural tooth colored materials to provide patients with an attractive, less noticeable alternative to traditional braces.
At T-Smile Orthodontics, we are proud to provide our patients with the 3M™ Clarity™ Ultra Self-Ligating Brackets and 3M™ Clarity™ Advanced Ceramic Brackets.
Ultra Self-Litagating Brackets
- Translucent and stain-resistant, Clarity Ultra brackets are an excellent fully-esthetic choice for you and your patients.
- Innovative, smooth ceramic bracket surfaces and edges are designed for patient comfort so your patients can live confidently.
- Clarity™ Ultra Self-Ligating Brackets are passive, but can be activated with the proprietary oval under tie-wing ligation design.
- A wide ceramic door assists rotational control with a broad mesial-distal span.
- Reliable door mechanism designed to resist unplanned opening and closing.
- Unique stress concentrator for predictable squeeze debonding.
- Clarity Ultra brackets do not require elastomeric ligatures which may stain during treatment.
- Color-coded with identification dots, vertical and horizontal reference marks for easy bracket selection, and positioning.
- Compatible with many 3M appliances to give orthodontists custom control and achieve results based on treatment preferences and the unique needs of the patient.
Designed with both the patient and orthodontist in mind, our innovative 3M™ Clarity™ Ultra Self-Ligating Brackets provide treatment control and predictability from start to finish.
3M™ Clarity™ Ultra Self-Ligating Brackets are translucent, stain-resistant, and when paired with 3M™ Unitek™ Esthetic Archwires, deliver a natural look. In addition, they’re available precoated with 3M™ APC™ Flash-Free Adhesive — the most efficient bonding system in orthodontics. Using the Clarity Ultra bracket system means choosing expertise, predictability and service you can trust and rely on for results.
