Thanks to an innovative clinical technology known as Self-Ligation, orthodontic treatment is more comfortable and efficient now than it ever has been in the past. Our office is proud to be at the forefront of orthodontic practices offering this treatment. We are pleased to be able to provide this new therapy option to our patients.
Self-Ligation appliances work with a patented “sliding door” design that is built-in, which holds the wire and enables it to freely slide back and forth. This is quite different from traditional orthodontic therapy which involves “tying in” archwires with tie-wires or elastic bands. Self-Ligation appliances therefore require fewer appointments and fewer adjustments in order to achieve treatment goals.
Shorter Treatment Times
One of the main benefits of Self-Ligation therapy is that in spite of using lighter forces to move teeth, we can dramatically reduce treatment times in comparison to conventional appliances.
Fewer Office Visits
Your orthodontic treatment will most likely require fewer office visits since Self-Ligation appliances require fewer adjustments and work more efficiently. This means your braces will be more convenient and comfortable during the treatment process.
