Self-ligating braces are the newest techology in orthodontics. Self-ligating braces combine tieless, "clip" brackets with a new innovative "slide" mechanism to hold the archwire in place. This allows your teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably. Conventional braces are tied with elastic bands which cause friction and pressure, as well as attracting plaque to the teeth which can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Many patients have been thrilled with self-ligating braces because of the "cleaner" esthetic look, less tooth pressure and easier maintenance. Self-ligating Braces benefits:
1. "Cleaner Look" without elastic bands
2. Teeth move freely with less friction and pressure
3. Cleaning is much easier
