Self-ligating braces are a great alternative to conventional braces.
Unlike traditional braces, which use elastic bands to hold an arch-wire firmly in place, self-ligating braces use a special clip that lets the wire move fluidly during treatment. As a result, the need for painful tightening is eliminated, and the number of appointments and the total treatment time is reduced.
