An aesthetic orthodontic system that works in your hands.
More and more patients are asking for treatment with aligners, but orthodontists know that aligners alone don’t always produce optimal results.
Using aligners to treat patients with severe crowding, major rotations, angulation issues and those with teeth that require extrusion and intrusion can be challenging if not impossible with aligners alone. Using attachments helps, but then it all comes down to patient compliance and that’s the most difficult aspect of treatment for an orthodontist to control.
The 2CLEAR ™ SYSTEM gives orthodontists the control of a fixed appliance with the aesthetics of an aligner. Now a 50 aligner case can become a 20 aligner case. Patients won’t suffer the fatigue of two years in aligners and practitioners can regain control.
Bracket and Aligner Attachement in One –
Small, Smooth and Comfortable
The 3D-Printed 2CLEAR Bracket is less than 1.3 mm thick, and so smooth to the touch, patients hardly notice them. It features a click-in slot that makes wire insertion a breeze. And the best part about the 2CLEAR Bracket is that it doubles as an aligner attachment, providing additional control during the aligner stage of treatment.
- ultra-low profile (1.3mm)
- low-friction material and slot design for excellent sliding mechanics
- self-ligating bracket with a slot that carries up to a 0.014 wire
- clicking sound when wire is fully seated in the slot
- easy-grip contour for holding bracket during placement and removal
- smooth, rounded surfaces (no sharp edges) to maximize patient comfort
- outlet for release of excess adhesive
- micro-retention bonding pad for optimized adhesion
- bevels for enhanced mechanical interaction with aligners
- specially angled surface foreasily seating aligners
The world’s thinnest bracket –
Patent-protected in the European Union and the United States
At 1.3mm, the 2CLEAR ™ Bracket is ultra-thin and ultra-smooth, comfortable for patients to wear and nearly invisible.
These self-ligating brackets are placed by direct bonding or indirect bonding depending on the practitioner’s preference. An .012 NiTi wire is inserted for the first phase of treatment. Because the 2CLEAR ™ Bracket offers excellent sliding mechanics, orthodontists can complete leveling and alignment with very low forces.
To begin the aligner phase, the patient is scanned with the brackets on, and a series of aligners are designed to finish the treatment. The 2CLEAR ™ Bracket provides anchorage for rotation, angulation, vertical and torque movements during the aligner phase.
Since the first patent was granted in 2018, over 300 successful cases have been documented.
Advantages of the 2CLEAR ™ SYSTEM
Ideal for most Indications
Proven to be effective
Excellent aesthetics, without compromised results.
It’s hard to convince patients with malocclusions far outside the indication of aligners to wear fixed labial appliances – metal brackets or traditional ceramic brackets. And many patients fear lingual treatment due to irritation of the tongue and interference with speech.
The 2CLEAR™ SYSTEM is the perfect solution for aesthetic-conscious patients with complex malocclusions. Orthodontists can deliver comfortable, aesthetic treatment without compromised results. And with the 2CLEAR ™ SYSTEM it takes less time. No more +24 month treatments with multiple aligner refinements. Most 2CLEAR ™ SYSTEM patients finish in 12 months or less with no need for refinements at the end of the aligner sequence.

How it works
3D Scan or Impression
After the initial alignment of the teeth in phase one, the practitioner takes a scan of the patient’s teeth with the brackets still on or takes an impression and sends it to 2C Dental. This scan serves as the basis for planning the subsequent aligner phase of treatment using the brackets as attachments. This allows maximum treatment control for predictable results.
Aligner for phase 2 and refinements
For phase two, the practitioner receives high-grade flexible aligners that move the patient’s teeth to the planned final position. If required, the practitioner can order additional aligners for refining the final result.
