Pros or 3M SmartClip™ Attachments


Intelligent clips

3M SmartClip’s “intelligent” clips release the wire if the forces pulling become too excessive, thus ensuring greater safety throughout the treatment process.


Low-profile attachments

The low-profile brace attachments allow for elevated comfort during treatment, with as minimal disruption as possible to your lifestyle.


Smooth surface

The smooth surface of the 3M SmartClip brackets protects the soft tissue in your mouth, enhancing your experience.

What to expect from your treatment?

Our specialist orthodontist will carry out a full assessment of your orthodontic case during your initial consultation and discuss your requirements. Based on your needs and desires, we will recommend a few brace solutions and explain the results you can expect with each one. If you have decided that the 3M SmartClip Self-Ligating Appliance System is the right choice for you, do not hesitate to let us know that this is what you prefer.

When you decide to go ahead with your treatment, your first appointment will be booked. During this session, the attachments will be bonded to your teeth, and a thin wire will be passed through, so the alignment can begin. Most orthodontic treatments take between 12 and 15 months, with more complex cases requiring up to 24 months.
