Self-Ligating Braces are dramatically advanced in design and is an entirely new way of treating patients.
Traditional braces often require removal of healthy teeth and the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer and can leave a more narrow arch and a flat profile. Traditional braces are tied in with elastics, which cause friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable.
Self-Ligating braces are different. They don’t use elastics to hold the archwire in place. Instead of elastic bands, Self-Ligating braces use small metal clips to hold the archwire into the bracket. This clip mechanism allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.
Self-Ligating braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Self-Ligating braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment.
