All braces we use are the latest technology. The low friction braces and self-ligating have replaced the classic with colorful elastics.
The best difference is that the traditional braces require elastics to hold the arch wire in place causing friction and pressure, the new system uses a slide mechanism that eliminates friction and binding making the teeth move more freely and comfortably.
Advantages over conventional braces:
- Possibility of less frequent appointments.
- Possibility of faster treatment.
- Less time consuming visits in the dental chair.
- Absence of bands that retain plaque.
