Self-ligating braces are made from the same materials as traditional braces. They are available in the traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets. They are the same size as traditional metal braces, but they can provide a more aesthetic appearance, particularly for adult patients.
How do self-ligating braces work?
Self-ligating braces use a specialized clip in place of colored ties to help the archwire guide the teeth into place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure placed on the teeth, which can sometimes result in fewer appointments.
Self-ligating braces are a great option for patients who need braces. Dr. Dykhouse can help you determine which type of braces will be most effective for your smile. Please contact our practice to schedule your complimentary orthodontic consultation.
