At Rendon Orthodontics, we offer self-ligating braces. Our practice utilizes high-quality materials and a patented technique to ensure your treatment produces superior results. If orthodontic treatment is needed for you or your child, self-ligating braces may be the ideal solution!
What Are Self-Ligating Braces?
Traditional braces consist of a wire that is held in place by brackets and elastic ties. Throughout treatment, this wire is periodically tightened to apply pressure to the teeth until they move to their proper position. Self-ligating braces utilize a spring loaded sliding clip that holds the wire in place, eliminating the need for elastic bands. Because the wire is held in place by a spring-loaded clip on each bracket, self-ligating braces do not require any tightening. Instead, the slide mechanism reduces the amount of pressure placed on your teeth, allowing them to move more freely, comfortably, and quickly.
Advantages of Self-Ligating Braces
The self-ligating system has some advantages over conventional braces. Aesthetically speaking, self-ligating braces are less noticeable due no elastic ties. Even better, there is also a ceramic (tooth-colored) version.
Self-ligating braces also provide great results in less time. Your visits at our office can also be shorter. It takes less time to open and close the clips of the self-ligating brackets than removing and adding individual elastic ties during the wire change.
The elimination of elastic ties also results in a much healthier smile after your treatment is complete. Elastic ties and traditional brackets can accumulate bacteria and plaque much easier than self-ligating braces. With the proper care and maintenance, you can reduce your risk for tooth decalcification/decay and gum disease during treatment.
