About Selfligating Braces

     “The Self-Ligating Braces - smile with confidence.”

Self-ligating braces are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics, meaning fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets. They are the same size as metal braces, but use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the arch wire guide teeth into place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth, and require fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.

Self-ligating brackets have an inbuilt metal labial face, which can be opened and closed. Brackets of this type have existed for a surprisingly long time in orthodontics.

Self-Ligating Braces come either in traditional metal, ceramic or clear brackets. Self-ligating braces, especially ceramic, which blend in with the teeth, are also more aesthetically pleasing than traditional ones. There are two types of brackets used in self-ligating braces: passive and active.
