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.
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
- Crooked teeth
- Protruding smile

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.- Aimee
We love Dr. Bietsch and all the staff! We have had nothing but a great experience. Love the family feel and comfortable environment. Very easy to get appointments. Highly recommend!- Jessica
Dr. Bietsch and his staff are so friendly. We are very happy we chose them for our orthodontic treatments! When school starts we will use the Bus and save hours in drive and appointment time away from school.- Lerla
Great Ortho and amazingly kind staff. My kids LOVE it here! I mean, why was there no Dr. Bietsch when I was their age and had to have braces?!? We highly recommend Dr. Bietsch.- L.R.
LOVE LOVE the expertise and precise character Dr. Bietsch and his staff have. Two of my children have had to get orthodontics for a second time because of bad outcomes. I am so glad we found an orthodontist that is as obsessed with perfection as my two girls are. I have recommended that people in surrounding cities make the drive to Prosper & they are very happy. Plus you will get the small-town family feel from Dr. Bietsch and his office staff.- Jay
I’ve got two kiddos currently being treated by Dr. B and a third one who’ll start seeing him soon and so far, every interaction we’ve had with anyone on their team has been great. My kids’ smiles are beautiful and becoming nearly pe- Karen
