Changing arches is easier for orthodontists

As we said: SmartClip™ SL3 Braces hold archwires without rubber bands. The orthodontist can change the arches more easily at follow-up appointments, because he doesn't need to swap the rubber bands for every individual bracket.

Can mean less time in the orthodontist's chair for your child?

Faster and easier archwire change by the orthodontist means your child spends less time in the orthodontist's chair.

Brushing is just plain easy

The fact Smartclip™ SL3 Braces don't need rubber bands has this special benefit for your child too: Your child's teeth and braces are easier to clean compared to rubber bands. Sounds good, doesn't it?

Move your child's teeth really gently and effectively

Smartclip™ SL3 Braces hardly stress your child's teeth and nudge them to the right place. So these braces are really nice to wear.

Looks cool

As these braces manage without rubber bands, they are less noticeable than metal brackets with rings.
