3M has introduced the Victory Series Low Profile Brackets with APC Flash-Free Adhesive, to be available in August. 3M has also introduced enhancements to the SmartClip SL3 Self-Ligating Appliance System.

With the introduction of the APC Flash-Free Adhesive Coated Appliance System in 2013, orthodontists were able to eliminate the flash removal step from bracket bonding. When orthodontists said they wanted more brackets available with this adhesive system, 3M listened. At the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) 2016 Annual Session, 3M introduced the Victory Series Low Profile Brackets with APC Flash-Free Adhesive, to be available in August.

Victory Series Low Profile brackets with APC Flash-Free Adhesive will join Clarity Advanced Ceramic Brackets, the SmartClip SL3 and Clarity SL Self-Ligating Appliance Systems, and Victory Series Superior Fit Buccal Tubes in offering orthodontists adhesive technology that allows them to move directly from bracket placement to bracket cure without removing adhesive flash. Patients treated with 3M brackets that include APC Flash-Free Adhesive also benefit from added protection for tooth enamel and quicker and easier debonding appointments.

3M has also introduced enhancements to the SmartClip SL3 Self-Ligating Appliance System, resulting in improved rotational control and reduction in engagement and disengagement forces.

“3M Oral Care offers unique and efficient products that help orthodontists differentiate their practices, grow case starts, and enjoy clinical, professional, and personal success,” said James Ingebrand, vice president and general manager, 3M Oral Care.
