MBT™ Versatile+ Appliance System

The MBT™ Versatile+ Appliance System is a combined set of appliances and solutions that work together to provide an efficient means to address all levels of clinical challenges.

The MBT Versatile+ appliance system leverages decades of scientific research and clinical experience together into one methodology. It is centered around stable arch control, continuous light force sliding mechanics, accurate bracket placement and effective diagnosis and treatment planning. The treatment philosophy that encompasses these elements delivers an innovative approach to many treatment challenges.

In 1997, Working with Drs. McLaughlin, Bennett and Trevisi, 3M Unitek first launched the portfolio of appliances that support the practice of the MBT™ System. Today the methodology is employed and taught by practitioners around the world. Aligned with the values of quality, efficiency, and ingenuity, the brackets, archwires and hand instruments offer a large selection of choices to apply the system in your practice.
