We utilize the SmartClip™ appliance by 3M Unitek in our office. The unique bracket system uses (sliding-door) technology known as "self-ligation" that allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. In addition, SmartClip™ brackets often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed.
