Self-ligating orthodontic braces

Summary Information: Self-ligating orthodontic braces

Self-ligating orthodontic braces: Self-ligating orthodontic braces are metal or clear brackets that are cemented to the teeth and an archwire that fits into the brackets, both of which work together to apply gentle pressure over time and properly align the teeth. Instead of elastic ties holding the archwire, as with traditional braces, self-ligating braces (brackets) are designed with a cover that snaps closed over the wire to hold it in place.
