Are self-ligating braces right for you?

Because self-ligating braces, like the Damon System, use a specialized clip that attaches to the archwire rather than elastics, you’ll experience less pressure as your teeth shift into place. This design aspect can make the realigning process more comfortable than traditional methods. That said, the advanced technology of these braces does result in a higher cost. Some of the benefits of self-ligating braces include:

  • Easy care: Traditional braces can trap food particles in your archwire or act as an obstacle when brushing your teeth. Self-ligating braces do not use elastics, making care easier.
  • Short appointments: Because individual brackets don’t need to be replaced during every orthodontic visit, you may experience shorter future appointments with self-ligating braces.
  • Long-lasting results: Self-ligating braces shift teeth into place gently and organically due to their sliding mechanism, leading to effective and permanent final results.

We will work with you from your first visit to determine whether our self-ligating braces are the right option for you, applying our industry insights and background knowledge of different braces to determine if the benefits outweigh the slight additional cost.
