You’ve been informed that you need braces. You are prepared for the process that awaits you, from getting your braces mounted to coming in for regular appointments to monitor your progress. You’re ready to accept the fact that you will be in it for the long haul while you wear metal brackets and wires on your teeth, but you want to find a way to make it as comfortable and effective as possible. Self-ligating braces are highly effective and produce less friction in your mouth. It means more comfort for you while you wait to see a reason to smile.
How Do Self-Ligating Braces Work?
Self-ligating braces are based on the same concept as traditional braces. You will still have brackets on your teeth and metal wires running through them. It is the gentle force of these wires, pulling on your teeth day in and day out, that will eventually shift your teeth into the proper position. Self-ligating braces have brackets that are similar to those that are typically used, except they do not require rubber bands or other ties to hold your wires where they belong. These braces are built to effectively tie down your braces so that you don’t have to worry about a thing. No need to be concerned about losing your rubber bands because you won’t need them.
Get Optimal Results Faster
Self-ligating braces mean less friction for your teeth as they gently shift your teeth in the right direction. You’ll find that you don’t have to see our orthodontist as often to check up on your progress. Your treatment time will be reduced as compared to traditional braces. It’s all about finding a treatment plan that will work for you to give you a beautiful smile. You may have to wait when you wear braces, but why wait any longer than you have to?
