Self Ligating Braces
Traditional braces require metal wire or elastic ties to hold the arch wires in place. These can make wearing braces uncomfortable and less attractive. In addition, elastic ties make proper oral hygiene difficult.
Today, self-ligation refers to braces that use tiny clips to hold the arch wires in place. Our office is the leader of practices around the world offering this great new technology.
The special “Interactive Clip” allows the orthodontist to use lighter forces to move teeth, reducing patient discomfort. The lighter forces also allows for reduced treatment times and shorter appointment visits. Self-ligation is not only efficient, it reduces the hygiene problems associated with ties used on most braces.
By using the innovative self-ligation braces and new treatment techniques, the orthodontist can align your teeth more quickly, easily and with less discomfort than ever before. And it works for everyone – children and adults.
