What Are Self-Ligating Braces & How Do They Work?

While similar to traditional braces, self-ligating braces feature a low-profile door mechanism. The self-ligating system clips directly to the wire to adjust your teeth rather than using elastic bands and metal ties to hold an archwire in place. Colors can be added just for fun!

Self-ligating braces typically require less frequent orthodontist appointments since the wires work constantly. Routine adjustments advance the wire size to continually develop a beautiful straight smile.

Benefits of Self-Ligating Braces

Our practice family loves self-ligating braces for many reasons, including:

  • Fast treatment: Adjustments to self-ligating braces are simpler and quicker since they do not require changing rubber bands and ties.
  • Increased comfort: With advances in technology and bracket size and smoothness, self-ligating braces typically feel more comfortable in your mouth than traditional braces. 
  • Less visibility: Brackets for self-ligating braces come in silver and clear colors, which blend into your smile. 
  • Reliability: Self-ligating braces can treat some of the most complex orthodontic needs. They are made of tough materials that can keep up with any busy lifestyle!
