What are self-ligating braces?

Self-ligating braces are an advanced orthodontic treatment option that utilizes brackets with built-in clips instead of elastic bands to hold the archwire in place. Due to this, the specialized brackets allow the wire to move freely, reducing friction and enabling more efficient tooth movement. Without the elastic bands, there is more comfort for patients!

Benefits of Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces work similarly to traditional metal braces. Self-ligating braces use brackets to serve as a foundation for forces used to help realign teeth. However, they also offer benefits like being easier to clean and requiring minimal appointments for adjustments as the braces are self-tightening. Many patients find self-ligating braces more comfortable.

How long does self-ligating braces treatment take?

The duration of self-ligating braces treatment varies based on individual needs. On average, whether you have crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, self-ligating braces are an effective treatment that can produce results anywhere from 12 to 24 months. Though this is roughly the same treatment length as traditional braces, appointments are often shorter in duration due to their advanced material.
