Self-ligating braces are crafted from the same material as traditional braces, with one important difference – elastic ties are not required. While this may seem like only a small change, it actually results in less friction for your teeth, fewer appointments at our Lakewood area practice, and a much more aesthetically pleasing appearance overall. Because we fully embrace this new technology, all of our patients undergoing comprehensive treatment with either traditional metal braces or clear ceramic braces have self-ligating braces—at no additional cost.
How do self-ligating braces work?
Instead of elastics, self-ligating braces reply on special clips that assist the archwire in guiding teeth into their correct place. This system reduces the amount of friction on the wire, allowing the teeth to move more quickly. This results in fewer appointments that have to be made over time.
