Types of Braces

Metal Self-ligating Braces

metalIn our office, we most commonly use self-ligating brackets which use a built-in system to secure the archwire. This ligation method is different from the traditional braces, in which tiny elastics, called oties, or metal ties are attached to each individual bracket to hold the archwire into place.

Ceramic Self-ligating Braces
