About 3M Clarity™ SL Self-Ligating Appliance System
3M Clarity Self-Ligating appliance system offers you an aesthetic treatment, without sacrificing treatment efficiency. Created from a translucent ceramic material, the 3M Clarity brackets blend nicely with your teeth, remaining almost invisible. The lack of elastics to hold the wire also supports an inconspicuous brace treatment, allowing your beautiful smile to shine throughout the process.
With 3M Clarity’s smooth polished edges you will not have to experience the typical irritation caused by braces, and with less in-chair time your entire treatment experience will let you focus on what’s truly important: the final results.

Pros or 3M Clarity™ Self-Ligating Braces
3M Clarity self-ligating stain-resistant clear ceramic brackets are designed to satisfy even the most demanding patients’ aesthetic requirements.
With clips, holding the wires instead of the traditional elastics, you will spend far less time in the dental chair during your adjustment appointments.
The brackets’ smooth finish will be gentle on your mouth, and the small-size bracket will make brushing your teeth almost as easy as it was before the braces.
What to expect from your treatment?
Duration of treatment
While there’s no one-solution fits all scenario for treatment duration, the average time during which our patients need their 3M Clarity Self-Ligating braces is between 12 and 15 months.
Our specialist orthodontist will carry out a full orthodontic assessment during your initial consultation and discuss the estimated treatment time and the results you can expect, taking into account your requirements.
Visits to your orthodontist
You can expect to visit your orthodontist every 6 or 8 weeks, with additional extensions possible due to the self-ligating braces’ design.
