What Is Self-Ligating?
The bracket system we use involves the use of passive self-ligating braces. The goal of this type of treatment is to allow the teeth to align with less pressure than prior teeth straightening methods required.
The process starts with a light, high technology arch-wire without the use of elastic o-rings. These wires are held in place by small sliding mechanisms and stops that hold the wires safely in place. As time passes, the teeth will begin to move into proper position and heavier wires are gradually substituted until the patient’s smile is a perfect smile with a functional bite.
Clear braces are nearly invisible and have rounded corners to make them more comfortable than traditional braces during the treatment process. These braces are designed to help move the teeth in a quicker, more efficient manner in order to shorten the length of treatment.
