Fairfax, VA Orthodontist

Self-ligating metal braces are affixed to the teeth, and wires are threaded through slots in the brackets. Built-in clips hold the wires to the brackets. The wires are made of metal alloys and deliver a constant, gentle force to move teeth. Self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics, meaning fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth.

Self-ligating braces are a great option for patients needing braces. Our Fairfax, VA orthodontist can help you determine what type of braces will be most effective for your smile based on your orthodontic needs. Please contact our practice to schedule your orthodontic consultation.
