Self-Tightening Braces

in Bee Cave, Kyle, and Westlake

Our high-tech self-ligating brackets (braces) gently tighten themselves over time. This means they don’t require the monthly tightening like traditional braces. This means you get to the finish line with fewer office visits.

What Are Self-Ligating Braces and How Do They Work?

We offer our self-ligating brackets in metal and tooth-colored (ceramic) options. Traditional braces use colored ties to hold the wires in place. These ties create friction and have to be frequently changed to reactivate the wire for continued movement of the teeth. Our advanced self-ligating brackets have less friction and use a specialized clip to hold the wire in place and gently reactivates itself. With less friction and self-tightening action, the result is faster initial un-crowding of the teeth with fewer trips to our office.  

Self-ligating brackets are known to accumulate less plaque than their traditional counterparts. Their sophisticated design is more cleansable and when coupled with proper oral hygiene practices, promotes healthier gums and teeth.
