3M CLARITY SL BRACES
These smart clips are computer designed and are the latest in technology.
They are made from high-tech ceramic with smooth rounded edges and are translucent.
Ordinary dental braces use “elastic bands” (or ligatures), to secure an archwire into each bracket.
Ligatures can become stained, requiring your orthodontist to change them frequently.
They can also retain food particles, making it more difficult for you to jeep your braces clean.
Self-ligating technology removes the need for ligatures.
Ligatures can actually slow down your overall treatment progress. They rub against the archwire and hinder tooth movement.
Without bands to take on and off, your dental appointments can be shortened, increasing your comfort level while reducing treatment time all at once.
