SELF LIGATING BRACES
Self ligating braces are made of the same material as traditional braces , metal or ceramic, however, they do not require ligature ties. That means you take less time to change wires at your orthodontic appointments. They are of the same size as the traditional braces but they are more comfortable and have better esthetic appearance. Self ligating braces are also easier to keep clean and offer superior biomechanical advantages during orthodontic treatment.
HOW DO SELF LIGATING BRACES WORK
Self ligated braces use specialized door or clip which holds the arch wire as they guide the teeth into proper place. The door or clip lowers the pressure on each tooth hence, making the treatment more comfortable. Since the ligature ties are not required, it takes lesser time during your appointments.
