Our metal braces are self-ligating, meaning they utilize a frictionless slide mechanism to hold the wire. This which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably, leading to less office visits, decreased overall treatment time, and decreased patient discomfort.
Metal self-ligating braces more comfortable than ever before. The metal brackets and wires are small and sleek, making irritation inside the mouth much less problematic than braces of the past.
At Terrana Orthodontics, we offer patients who choose metal braces a version that is self-ligating. This type of braces does not have elastic ties that can trap and collect plaque, making them a more hygienic option. Self-ligating braces allow the teeth to move faster and more comfortably thanks to its innovative slide mechanism that holds the wire.
