The Self-ligating Bracket System
Self-ligating appliances are an innovative clinical technology that makes orthodontic treatment more efficient and more comfortable than ever before. The traditional treatment involving tying archwires in with elastic ties causes friction. This involved heavier forces to move the teeth, resulting in a longer treatment time. Self-ligation appliances have a built-in “sliding door” that holds the wire in place while allowing it to slide freely back and forth.
Essix Retainers: Essix are created specifically for each individual patient after braces are removed. They are called “retainers” because they retain your teeth in the corrected position. These are made of durable, clear plastic which are virtually invisible and offer a glistening shine to your teeth.
Removable Hawley Retainers: These retainers are a combination of wire and plastic, and can also be used after braces are removed. They are available in a wide variety of colors and designs for our patient’s personal preference.
