If the prospect of traditional braces doesn’t appeal, self-ligating braces work without the necessity of an elastic module, which some people can find cumbersome due to the discomfort and even sores due to the rubbing of materials against the sensitive inner mouth.
Without the need for the elastic, these self-ligating braces work with the inclusion of a clip that holds the wire in place, making for a less invasive set within the mouth. Available in ceramic and metal brackets, these braces are decidedly less noticeable than traditional braces, keeping the procedure effective yet discreet.
Due to their hardy nature, this style of brace also has a shorter treatment time than its elastic counterpart. Straighter teeth can be yours in the not-so-distant future, it’s up to you to make that first step.
