Self Ligating Braces
These braces have a gate that opens and closes to hold the wire in place.
The advantage to you is less friction. Teeth move best with light forces. Removing as much friction from the system allows us to use lighter wires to move the teeth. Less force equals less discomfort and faster tooth movement.
We prefer to use self-ligating braces because it makes your experience much better than using ‘old school’ braces. Changing your wires goes smoother and faster with gates that open and close.
Don’t worry – we still add all the colors so you can accessorize your smile!
