Braces

Why Braces?

  • For patients who may not be a good candidate for Invisalign, or for those who prefer braces, we’ve got you covered.
  • At G & G Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, all patients will receive Self Ligating Braces, which use a clip to hold your archwire in place instead of traditional rubber bands.
  • These clips allow for quicker and easier wire adjustments.
  • No more tightening is required, which can all mean less time in the orthodontist’s chair!
  • Self Ligating braces also have a low-profile design with sculpted edges to create a smoother surface against your cheeks and lips.
  • They are smaller, less noticeable, and easier to brush around and can be a great choice for any age

Benefits of Self Ligating Braces

  • By combining the aesthetic appeal of traditional clear aligners with the efficiency and comfort of self-ligating braces, these innovative orthodontic appliances provide incredible results in a shorter period.
  • These technological marvels feature clear tieless brackets and high-technology archwires for quick and discreet treatment. Unlike traditional brackets, they don’t need frequent tightening, which reduces the friction on your teeth, gums, and mouth.
  • They are also resistant to stains and discolorations, remaining practically invisible during your entire treatment. If you’re looking for an effective, convenient, and fuss-free solution for orthodontic problems, this is it!
 

What is the difference?

Traditional 

  • Use archwires, brackets, and rubber bands to straighten and realign crooked teeth.
  • Rubber bands trap food particles, and this can lead to plaque build-up and decay.
  • More friction and pressure on the tooth.
  • The treatment takes longer.

Self-Ligating 

  • Use specially designed clips to hold the archwires in place instead of rubber bands.
  • It is easier to keep your teeth clean because there are no rubber bands.
  • Brackets are thinner, smaller, and less noticeable.
  • Less pressure and friction are placed on the tooth.
  • Treatment is quicker.
