Self-ligating braces represent a modern and efficient approach to orthodontic treatment. These braces use a unique mechanism where the brackets have built-in clips or doors that hold the archwire in place, eliminating the need for traditional elastic bands or ligatures.

Self-ligating braces are an innovative choice for orthodontic treatment, offering efficiency, comfort, and convenience. While they may have a slightly higher cost and limited color options, many patients find their advantages well worth the investment in their smile.
