WHAT ARE METAL SELF LIGATING BRACES?
Metal self-ligating braces placed at our clinic in London is a system of orthodontic treatment modality, which is used to straighten teeth and bring them to their appropriate location to give you a beautiful and healthy smile. Metal self-ligating braces are similar to traditional or regular braces but with one significant improvement. Standard metal braces in London straighten teeth using brackets and an archwire. In regular metal braces, the archwire is held in place with rubber bands and elastics. These elastics and rubber bands can cause significant discomfort and pain, and they also trap food particle and are difficult to maintain. To overcome these disadvantages, metal self-ligating braces were introduced. Metal self-ligating braces are superior, more advanced teeth straightening treatment modality. The brackets of metal self-ligating braces are made of high-grade biocompatible metal alloys and are narrow and smaller than regular brackets. Metal self-ligating brackets have a metal facing and an inbuilt self-locking spring-loaded door mechanism which can be opened and closed to hold the archwire in place. This means metal self-ligating braces placed by our orthodontist in London are much more streamlined, discreet and comfortable for you than regular braces.
