The 3M Clarity Ultra Self-Ligating Brackets are an aesthetic option designed to offer the orthodontist rotational control and improved versatility, without the need for ligatures.
3M Oral Care, a division of St Paul, Minn-based 3M, has introduced 3M™? Clarity™? Ultra Self-Ligating Brackets, expanding the Clarity brand portfolio, which includes 3M Clarity Advanced Ceramic Brackets and 3M Clarity Aligners. Clarity Ultra offers rotational control and improved versatility, without the need for ligatures, according to the company.
Clarity Ultra features 3M’s stress concentrator, which the company says is designed for predictable and consistent debonding. It includes a wide ceramic door with a broad mesial-distal span, to assist rotational control. According to the company, this door has also been shown to endure twice as many opening and closing cycles as typical treatment.
These brackets come precoated with 3M APC™? Flash-Free Adhesive for bonding. Removing adhesive application and flash clean-up from the orthodontist’s workflow impacts chair time and practice workflow.
Clarity Ultra Self-Ligating Brackets are translucent and stain-resistant, with no visible metal parts. They also feature smooth ceramic surfaces and edges for patient comfort.
