HOW ARE SELF LIGATING BRACES DIFFERENT?

When we compare self ligating and traditional metal braces the thing to watch for is the way in which the arch wire is secured to the brackets.  With traditional metal braces , the arch wire is affixed with the help of elastic ties. Self-ligating braces on the other hand are held in place with a built-in spring clip that is part of the bracket.

Studies have shown  advantages of self-ligating braces compared to traditional metal braces with elastic colours as follows:

• The braces and wires endure less friction

• Typically patients enjoy faster and even fewer appointments over the life of their treatment

• Self ligating braces are  easier to  keep clean resulting in less oral bacteria

• Generally they are considered less painful, although it is important to note that pain tolerance is completely subjective and it is not uncommon for a patient to experience discomfort at the beginning of their treatment.  This eases with time, and generally speaking, patients who opted for self ligating braces reported a faster adjustment period.
