Never Heard of Self-Litigating Braces? Learn More About Them Here
Self-ligating braces straighten teeth using brackets and an archwire, without the use of colored rubber bands. Instead of using the rubber bands to connect the brackets to the archwire, self-ligating braces use a specialized bracket that clips directly to the wire.
This creates a more streamlined, discreet braces treatment that doesn’t draw as much attention to the orthodontic appliance. Self-ligating brackets come in clear and metal, although the wire is usually metal-colored.
