SELF-LIGATING BRACKETS: IN-OVATION
This new generation of brackets is our standard bracket. What makes it efficient is its SELF LIGATING system. It is smaller and rounder than its predecessors. Since it does not need elastic ties, it is even more discreet, furthermore elastic ties retain bacterial plaque that can consequently irritate the gums. Innovation brackets are more hygienic.
We are currently using next generation self-ligating brackets which are smaller and makes the alignment phase go faster (because of its design, friction between the slot of the bracket and the arch is minimized thus favor movement). These are our standard brackets because we want the best for you.
These brackets are more hygienic than those tied with elastics because elastics are porous and end up being stained by food. In time it also loses its elasticity which is why orthodontic visits are required every 4 weeks wherein self-ligating braces, approximately can be spaced until 12 weeks apart (which make it more practical for the patient’s individual schedule)
