What are Self-ligating Braces?
Self-ligating braces are made of the same material as traditional braces.
- traditional metal
- clear brackets
They come in two types: passive and active.
Passive Self-ligating Braces
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 Self-Ligating Braces
Active brackets use a thicker archwire that moves teeth more aggressively, but also offers more control for consistent and strong results.
Benefits of Self-Ligating Braces

- Fewer appointments
