All braces are not created equal! At Rapid City Orthodontics, we use self-ligating braces to move teeth more quickly, with lighter forces, increased comfort, as we create wide beautiful smiles. The non-friction function of self-ligation means more tooth movement is possible using fewer appliances and avoiding the removal of permanent teeth.
The days of having braces tightened are over. Self-ligating brackets are tie-less brackets that reduce the pressure on your teeth. Doors on the brackets slide open and closed to allow the high tech wires to work more efficiently. These brackets are also lower profile, keeping lips more comfortable and help make cleaning easier!
