Self-Ligating Braces

Self-Ligating Braces in Prosper & Melissa

High Quality Orthodontic Care

The main difference between self-ligating braces and traditional metal or clear braces is they do not have colored elastics to hold in the wire. Instead, each bracket is designed to hold the wire into place by a built-in mechanism in order to eliminate the need for elastic ties to hold the wire into the bracket. Having braces can greatly impact your teeth and oral health for the rest of your life and it is truly more than just creating a beautiful smile. If you would like to learn more about our self-ligating braces, we recommend that you come in for an appointment as soon as possible.

For more information on our self-ligating braces, call us today at (972) 934-6222 or contact us online.

How Do Self-Ligating Braces Work?

Made of stainless steel (like traditional metal braces) or clear ceramic, your new self-ligating braces will straighten your teeth with a built-in clip that holds the arch wire in place. Not having an elastic to hold the arch wire means less friction in your mouth and a decrease in the amount of pressure on the teeth, which will ultimately give you the most comfort during treatment.

Self-ligating braces also offers quicker teeth movement (about 6 months faster) compared to conventional braces and fewer appointments in our office. Once the self-ligating braces are placed on the teeth, the patient will have to return every 8 to 10 weeks for adjustments.

Self-ligating braces can treat the following conditions:

  • Jaw alignment issues
  • Crowded teeth
  • Spaced teeth
  • Under bites
  • Overbites
  • Crooked teeth
  • Protruding smile

Patient Experiences

Opinions We Cherish Most
  • “I chose to see Dr. Bietsch from a referral from a friend. I am so happy that I did. The entire consult was all about my son and never about the doctor. I was so impressed that I chose to see him myself for some orthodontic work.”

    - Amy
  • “We love Dr. Bietsch's office. It's very easy to find a qualified orthodontist, but more difficult to find the combination of highly qualified, and caring. I feel like going above and beyond, is just normal for Dr. Bietsch and his staff.”

    - Kelly
  • “I was walked through each x-ray, necessary procedure and plan to align a jaw, straighten teeth, and make sure both my children and I were going to be happy with the results. Very impressed.”
