3M Self-Ligating Braces
Faster, More Comfortable Care
Traditional braces use elastics and ties to gradually move teeth into their ideal position. As part of that, patients with traditional braces must have them tightened on a regular basis. Visits like these can be very time consuming, and they can also cause soreness and even slow down the treatment process.
For a faster and more comfortable treatment, Dr. Jeff and Dr. Jen can offer orthodontic care using 3M Self-Ligating braces, a system that can provide effective results with fewer (not to mention shorter) office visits. They work by having the brackets themselves keep the wires in place using small metal clips. This means elastic ties are not needed to hold the wires, and this allows the teeth to move more efficiently while the braces actually apply less pressure, giving patients the best of both worlds. The elastic bands can create friction and tension that leads to discomfort for the teeth and gums, but with 3M Self-Ligating braces, this is no longer a problem.
What's more, 3M Self-Ligating braces come in different formats to meet different needs. That means patients who are worried about how braces will make their teeth look can get discreet care that improves on the experience of traditional braces. Plus, they also can be used to address a wide variety of orthodontic issues, making them a viable treatment option for many kinds of patients.
In any case, 3M Self-Ligating braces provide care that is less noticeable, and you can look forward to a more comfortable treatment that also takes much less time — sometimes by as much as a few months.
