Self-Ligating Ceramic Braces From Your Fairfax Orthodontist

Self-ligating ceramic braces are tooth-colored, making them next-to-invisible. They are affixed to the teeth, and wires are threaded through slots in the brackets. The brackets are made of ceramic or porcelain materials and the wires are made of metal alloys. The wires deliver a constant, gentle force to move your teeth. 

Self-ligating braces use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the arch wire guide your teeth into place. This clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth, and decreases the number of adjustments needed because there are no elastics to replace.
