Sistema de Aparatología de Auto-Ligado
Los clips no proporcionan una fuerza de
asentamiento, resultando en un sistema de
baja fricción.
•
Sin embargo, el conocido diseño gemelo
permite a los usuarios activar los brackets,
cuando lo deseen, con el uso de ligaduras y
amarres de acero inoxidable.
2. ¿Estoy obligado a usar alguna técnica
especial de tratamiento con los Aparatos
del Sistema SmartClip?
Ya que los brackets SmartClip utilizan un diseño
tradicional de bracket gemelo, no se requiere
ningún cambio en su tratamiento o mecánica. Con
la reducción en fricción inherente a un sistema
pasivo, usted puede notar que se aumenta el
rango de acción de los alambres de arco, de
manera que usted puede decidir alargar los
intervalos de tiempo entre citas, en comparación
con los aparatos tradicionales con ligaduras.
3. ¿Estoy obligado a usar el instrumento de mano
para los aparatos SmartClip?
El instrumento de mano está diseñado para ayudar
a colocar y remover el alambre de arco. Está
destinado a ser usado con los aparatos SmartClip
para colocar y remover los alambres de arco de
todos los tamaños. Sin embargo, los alambres
livianos pueden ser colocados con un dedo, si así
se prefiere. El manual de técnicas debe ser
consultado en detalle antes de usar el aparato
(ver Fig. 1 y Fig. 2).
5. ¿Cuántas veces puedo insertar un alambre de
arco en el Mecanismo de Auto-Ligado SmartClip?
El mecanismo de auto-ligado SmartClip está
diseñado para soportar los cambios normales
de alambre a lo largo del tratamiento.
6. ¿Cuáles son las dimensiones de la ranura
del bracket?
La medida desde la base de la ranura al fondo de
los clips es 0.027" para los brackets anteriores
inferiores y 0.0275" para todos los demás.
7. ¿Cuál es el grosor de los clips?
0.013" – Similar al diámetro

THE SMARTCLIP™ SELF-LIGATING APPLIANCE SYSTEM
THE INTELLIGENT CHOICE. THE SMARTCLIP™ APPLIANCE SYSTEM FROM
3M UNITEK DRAMATICALLY ADVANCES BRACKET DESIGN AND REVOLUTIONIZES
SELF-LIGATION. WITH SOPHISTICATED ENGINEERING THAT INTEGRATES
THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES OF NICKEL-TITANIUM INTO A PRECISELY DESIGNED
FORM, 3M UNITEK INNOVATORS HAVE CREATED A CLIP MECHANISM
THAT BRINGS THE FIRST TRULY SELF-LIGATING APPLIANCE TO ORTHODONTICS.
With the SmartClip Self-Ligating Appliance, there’s nothing for you to open or close. The integral
nickel-titanium clips permit easy and simple archwire insertion and removal, yet hold the archwire with
a pre-programmed force that avoids unintentional disengagement. And, you’ll find a familiar twin bracket
design that lets you keep your preferred treatment techniques.
But there’s more to the SmartClip System than simply the most unique self-ligating bracket design
available. Integral to the system are the advantages of APC™ PLUS Adhesive coating and the renowned
MBT™ System Prescription, exclusively from 3M Unitek. Together in the SmartClip Appliance System, these
premier orthodontic systems combine to bring unmatched efficiencies and more predictable outcomes to
orthodontic treatment.
THERE’S INTELLIGENCE
IN THE
CLIP
Engineered from nickel-titanium, which has an intrinsic memory for shape and
force, the SmartClip™ Bracket self-ligating mechanism secures the archwire in
place, yet is specially calibrated to release the archwire if forces exceed a
predetermined level. This helps assure that force levels recommended for
biocompatible tooth movement are not exceeded, therefore promoting efficient
tooth movement with less patient discomfort.
With SmartClip self-ligating brackets, archwire changes are fast and simple. The
SmartClip bracket has no sliding closures or active clips to retain the wire.
SmartClip™ Appliance Hand Instrument
Therefore, there are no mechanisms to slide or clog or become difficult to operate.

FOR INCREASED
PRODUCTIVITY
As a passive system, SmartClip self-ligating appliances inherently reduce friction
for improved sliding mechanics, allowing archwires to work with greater
efficiency as compared to active systems. Clinical experience over the years has
shown that a passive system may permit longer appointment intervals. You may
SmartClip™ bracket (Profile)
even find that additional efficiencies are gained during the leveling/aligning and
closing mechanics phases.
Engagement end
If you need an active system at some point in the treatment, a familiar twin
bracket design permits use of traditional ligation methods, on a per-tooth or
full-arch basis. This results in a complete system for the control you desire.
With no closures to move, archwires are simple to engage with a specially designed
Removal end
SmartClip™ Appliance Hand Instrument. Initial light archwires can be engaged
with only a gloved finger. Using the dual-purpose SmartClip Appliance Hand
Instrument for removal, even larger finishing archwires are easily disengaged.
The SmartClip Appliance Hand Instrument uses reciprocal force and cams against
the face of the bracket, minimizing patient discomfort, and also avoiding potential
bond failures associated with more difficult archwire removal processes.
Benefits of the SmartClip™ Appliance System
• Passive design for efficient tooth movement
• Bracket design lets you use familiar twin bracket
treatment techniques
• Active capability per-tooth and on demand
• Reduced friction and light forces permit
increased patient comfort
• Operation of the mechanism does not contribute
to bond failures
• Reduced chair time/ longer appointment intervals
• Easy wire engagement and disengagement
using a convenient dual-purpose
hand instrument
• A narrow hand instrument is also available
to facilitate removal of small archwires on
lower anteriors
• Familiar twin bracket design facilitates easy
transition to self-ligation
• For maximum bonding efficiency, choose
3M Unitek APC™ II Adhesive pre-coating or
APC™ PLUS Adhesive pre-coating with color
changing adhesive and fluoride release.
• MBT™ System Prescription for treatment
efficiency and predictability

INTELLIGENTLY DESIGNED
PATIENT SATISFACTION
FOR INCREASED
Faster archwire changes mean reduced chair time. Reduced chair time means
happier patients. And, because the SmartClip™ Appliance System is passive,
friction is dramatically reduced, which can result in longer appointment
intervals and less patient discomfort.
Hygiene may be improved as well, because there are no ligatures required
and no tiny enclosed areas or sliding mechanisms around which plaque can
build. If the patient requests colored ligatures, the bracket design
accommodates ligature use.

MBT™ VERSATILE+ APPLIANCE SYSTEM
THE NOW GENERATION OF
PRE-ADJUSTED APPLIANCES
3M Unitek has incorporated the MBT™ System into the SmartClip™
Self-Ligating Appliance System. Developed by Drs. McLaughlin, Bennett and
Trevisi, the MBT prescription and treatment system provides you the tools to
finish your cases efficiently and predictably. More than an orthodontic
prescription, the MBT System is a patient-centered, outcome-based approach
designed to give you the flexibility you need to manage case-to-case variation
with predictable outcomes.
THE SMARTCLIP™ SELF-LIGATING APPLIANCE SYSTEM
SmartClip™ Bracket System Technology
The first truly self-ligating bracket, SmartClip brackets hold archwires in place without ligatures and
each is programmed to release the wire when force exceeds a predetermined level. The result is less
patient discomfort and more efficient treatment. For maximum bonding efficiency, choose 3M Unitek
APC™ II Adhesive pre-coating or APC™ PLUS Adhesive pre-coating with color changing adhesive and
fluoride release.
Exclusive SmartClip Molar Brackets
The SmartClip system includes, at your option, SmartClip molar brackets. As with all SmartClip
brackets, SmartClip molar brackets permit easy archwire insertion. Distal anchorage bends can be made
prior to insertion, thus reducing the opportunity for molar bond failures associated with
intra-oral bending. In addition, when using the SmartClip mandibular molar bracket, occlusal
interference is greatly reduced by eliminating occlusal tie-wings.
Improved Clean Up
The APC™ PLUS System color change adhesive goes on pink for improved reference and more efficient
flash clean up. Positioning is fast and accurate. Visible flash makes for better clean up, leaving less
adhesive behind for plaque buildup, improved hygiene and reliable debonding. After exposure to light, the
adhesive is colorless.
Moisture Tolerant...Fluoride Release
The APC PLUS System allows for some moisture uptake. And, if you choose to use Transbond™ Plus
Self Etching Primer, you can etch and prime in one, simple step without compromising bond strength
...wet or dry. Fluoride release enhances doctor/patient confidence.
Single-Use Packaging and Convenient Dispensing System
Each adhesive coated bracket is sealed in a light-protective, tamper-evident blister. The blister
contains Palmer Notation, torque and angulation, lot number and expiration date for easy identification
and organization. The SmartClip Self-Ligating Appliance System also features 7x7 storage and
dispensing capacity. A convenient patient setup tray lets you transfer exactly what you need to
chair side.
MBT™ System Prescription
Providing you with the ability to manage case-by-case variability, improve patient comfort and
convenience, and deliver predictable outcomes is the core of the MBT Versatile+ Appliance System.
