SmartClip™ SL3 Self-Ligating Braces

SmartClip SL3 Braces are very comfortable.

It's a breeze! These braces are free and easy to wear. SmartClip™ SL Braces are self-ligating. That means their archwires are held not by little rubber bands, but by an innovative and unique clip system. This benefits you in loads of ways.

Changing arches is easier for orthodontists.

As we said: SmartClip™ SL Brackets hold archwires without rubber bands. Your orthodontist can change the arches more easily at follow-up appointments, because there's no need to swap the rubber bands for every individual brace.

Can mean less time in the dentist's chair for you

Faster and easier archwire change by the orthodontist means you can spend less time in the dentist's chair. Makes sense, doesn't it?

Brushing is just plain easy

The fact that SmartClip™ SL3 Braces do not need rubber bands has a special benefit for you too. Your teeth and braces are easier to clean compared to rubber bands. Sounds cool, doesn't it?

Move your teeth really gently and effectively

SmartClip™ SL3 Braces hardly stress your teeth, and nudge them to the right place with light forces. So these braces are comfortable to wear and engineered to move your teeth quickly.

Looks cool

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