Self-ligating braces offer several benefits for patients. They use a self-ligation technique using lighter wires and lower friction brackets to move teeth, while resulting in faster treatment times due to its slide mechanism, strong, mechanical base bonding and solid walls structured to control tooth movement with speed and efficiency. In addition to greater comfort, self-ligating braces make it easier to maintain good hygiene because they are easier to keep clean. This contributes to greater health, happiness and physical attractiveness for the duration of patient treatment. If you are interested in finding out if self-ligating braces in Council Bluffs, Iowa, would be a good fit for your smile, our orthodontist, Dr. Michelle Wulf, will be happy to tell you more.
