Self Ligating Braces

At Walt Orthodontics, we are committed to using advanced technology and therefore use self-ligating braces. Self-ligating braces differ from the traditional metal braces by the way in which the wire is secured inside the bracket.

With traditional metal braces, the wire is held in place by an elastic colour tie. With self-ligating braces, the wire is held in place by a built-in spring clip that is part of the bracket.

Research studies have shown the following advantages of self-ligating braces compared to traditional metal braces with elastic colours:

• Reduced friction

• Greater treatment efficiency

• Quicker appointments

• Fewer appointments

• Reduced retention of oral bacteria

• Lower pain intensity

• Less undesirable over-angulation of front teeth

We offer both metal self-ligating braces and clear self-ligating braces. Contact us to schedule your free consult.
