Braces

Overview

Orthodontic treatment helps to create a beautiful smile and improve the way the upper and lower teeth bite together. Conditions that can be treated by orthodontic treatment include crowded, crooked, spaced, and protruding teeth.


Metal, Traditional Braces 

Traditional metal braces consist of stainless steel brackets that are fixed to the front surface of the teeth. A metal archwire runs through the brackets and is held in place by elastic bands, otherwise also known as ‘ligatures’.


Metal, Self-Ligating Braces 

Similar to traditional metal braces, self-ligating metal braces have stainless steel brackets that are fixed to the front surface of the teeth. However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of ligatures. Instead, they use specialised metal clips to hold the archwire in place without clamping it tightly.

At Advanced Dental Group, we provide only self-ligating braces as they offer a number of benefits over traditional braces, which will be discussed further below.

What are the advantages of self-ligating braces over traditional braces? 

1. Shorter Treatment Period 
Without ligatures, the reduction in friction will help the teeth to move faster. Hence, the treatment period for self-ligating braces will be shorter as compared to the treatment period for traditional metal braces.

2. Fewer follow-up appointments
The metal clips of self-ligating braces have a longer service life and do not need to be replaced regularly, unlike the ligatures used in traditional metal braces.

3. Greater comfort 
Without the use of ligatures to attach the archwire to the brackets, there will be a reduced feeling of tightness as less force is required to move the teeth.

4. Easier to care for
As there are no ligatures used, less food debris gets trapped between the brackets, which makes maintenance easier.
