Self-Ligating Braces RaleighSelf-ligating braces are made from the same material as traditional braces, and come in traditional metal, ceramic or clear brackets.
They come in two types: passive and active. Passive brackets are often used at the beginning of the treatment to help teeth start moving into position, because they use a smaller archwire that creates less friction, allowing teeth to move more freely. Active brackets use a thicker archwire that moves teeth more aggressively, but also offers more control for consistent and strong results.
