Self-Ligating Braces Q & A

What are self-ligating braces?

Self Ligating Brackets have small doors in each bracket, and they do not need to be tied with traditional elastic ties. By eliminating the elastic ties around the bracket/wire interface, there is virtually no friction when teeth move. Typically, this allows clinician to move teeth faster, with more efficiency, and oftentimes with less discomfort. Also, since the elastic ties are typically where the plaque accumulates, patients show better oral hygiene.

Why should I choose Pitts21 brackets?

Quicker adjustment visits

  • With SLB, we don’t need to replace your elastic ties, and the adjustment visits are quicker than with traditional braces

More comfortable treatment

  • Teeth move more readily since there is no friction involved, and therefore you will enjoy less discomfort while going through treatment

Faster Results

  • Your teeth will look better earlier than with traditional braces, The Pitts21 system applies precise pressure and engagement, manipulates teeth position better earlier, and for this reason, you will see the results faster.

Fewer in-office visits

  • As much as we love to see you in our office, we know you have other things to do! Since you don’t have elastics to change, you’ll have fewer in-office visits and the ones you do have will be shorter.
