Advanced Technology for Faster Results
We are pleased to offer advanced, self-ligating braces in Durham, Oxford, and surrounding areas in NC. Self-ligating braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. Thanks to these innovative new braces, achieving your perfect smile can be faster and easier than you ever thought possible!
Self-Ligating Braces — A World Without Elastic Ties
Self-ligating braces use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth to place. These clips help reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth and require fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.
Self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties.” With tie-less braces, you can experience treatment without tightening.
Faster Treatment Time
While treatment time can vary, clinical studies demonstrate that self-ligating braces work up to six months faster than traditional metal braces.
And while invisible aligners can be effective at straightening some crooked teeth, not everyone is a candidate. In contrast, self-ligating braces work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align ALL teeth for a phenomenal smile that enhances your entire facial appearance.
Another benefit - no need to worry about lost, misplaced, or forgotten clear aligners, so you get in and out of treatment quickly.
Even though self-ligating braces work quickly, the use of gentle, low-friction force means less discomfort for you. Light “shape memory” titanium wires are used, gently guiding your teeth to their ideal position.
Self-Ligating Braces Are More Convenient
Self-Ligating braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable, and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque, self-ligating braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus, they are available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.
