The SmartClip appliance by 3M Unitek is a unique self-ligating passive bracket system that uses a specially designed clip in the bracket to hold the archwire in place. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. In addition, SmartClip(tm) brackets often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed.
