Frictionless or Self-ligating Braces
Self-ligating (or frictionless) braces eliminate the need for the ligature (elastic) ties that wrap around each bracket and secure the wire to the bracket. In theory, this system of braces allows for less binding of the wire to the bracket – creating a smoother (frictionless) movement of the tooth along the wire, with more potential for arch development (expansion).
With Self-ligating brackets you can generally expect:
Fewer office visits (as the elastic ligatures or ties do not have to be changed monthly)
- Improved aesthetics
