Today’s Orthodontics is pleased to offer self-ligating, advanced braces in Canton, Novi, Livonia, and Woodhaven, MI. 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 are an advanced technology that straightens your teeth faster with fewer adjustments. Traditional metal braces require a visit monthly, at least, barring emergency visits to replace bands and brackets. Additionally, you can expect traditional braces to take up to two years! With self-ligating braces, you can expect a 35% faster treatment than traditional metal braces, with a visit only once every 8 – 10 weeks!
As you can imagine, the additional clutter in your mouth that traditional metal braces require makes it very difficult to keep your mouth healthy. The bands, called ligatures, required to hold the archwire in place are impossible to completely clean, which leaves food particles in your braces. Particles lead to tooth decay or even cavities. Even worse, as the ligatures snap, they no longer apply the correct amount of pressure to move the tooth. This adds time that you are in braces.
Since self-ligating braces do not require ligatures to hold the archwire in place, it means that each bracket is “self-ligating.” The benefit to you is that they allow easier care of your mouth, reducing the risk for cavities and tooth decay. Also, the lack of ligatures means you don’t have to worry about your treatment taking longer than projected.
Overall, self-ligating braces have much to offer those who want a healthier smile – discreetly and quickly. With traditional metal braces, you are constantly faced with fragile bands, large brackets, and frequent office visits. With self-ligating braces, you don’t have to sacrifice your schedule every month or worry about broken bands hindering your treatment process.
Additionally, the brackets themselves are smaller and less obstructive to your smile, giving you confidence throughout your treatment. With faster treatment, fewer visits, and smaller and easier-to-clean brackets, you can get a smile you will love for the rest of your life!
