Beautiful, healthy smiles

04 June 2024

On May 23, 2024, Solventum, formerly 3M Health Care, launched 3M Clarity Aligners in the UK.

More and more patients desire to straighten their teeth or close gaps but are concerned about the disruption to their lives, how they will look during treatment, or the cost of treatment.

Solventum offers a broad portfolio of both fixed and removable appliances designed for efficient, aesthetic and effective treatment.

Clarity Aligners were unveiled at an event held at Frameless, an immersive venue and experience in London. Guests were treated to presentations on the system, how Clarity Aligners can help reduce plastic waste, and a mindfulness session.

Clarity Aligners is a customised orthodontic system that allows practitioners to deliver beautiful smiles to patients. An innovation backed by robust customer service and 75 years of experience moving teeth, these aligners allow clinicians to create treatment plans that may combine fixed appliance treatment and aligner treatment according to the demands of the case, as well as add retention.

The Eco-Flex Shipments feature helps reduce plastic waste in eligible cases by shipping only the aligners needed.

Alongside the aligners, attendees saw a preview of 3M Clarity Precision Grip Attachments, to be exclusively available with Clarity Aligners. These state-of-the-art, 3D-printed and fully-cured composite attachments enable flash-less bonding and durable performance throughout treatment.

Karim Mansour, president of Dental Solutions, said, “At Solventum, we draw on our heritage of innovation to continually advance the practice of oral care, improve patient outcomes, and transform practices. We look forward to sharing more about how our innovative orthodontic solutions help practitioners around the world create beautiful, healthy smiles that patients want.”
