Creating a beautiful, healthy smile is possible with self-ligating braces. Similar to traditional metal braces, this orthodontic treatment option offers a more subtle and comfortable solution for patients. Mik Orthodontics can help you determine if self-ligating braces are right for you.
Because of how similar they are to traditional metal braces, most individuals who are good candidates for metal braces are a good fit for self-ligating braces.
From crooked to crowded teeth, these braces can correct both cosmetic and orthodontic problems. They can also help with bite irregularities like an overbite, underbite or crossbite. Patients of all ages can wear self-litigating braces, making them a versatile and effective treatment solution.
No matter the cosmetic or orthodontic issue you want to correct, you’ll experience many advantages with self-ligating braces:
At Mik Orthodontics, we offer two types of self-ligating brackets — passive and active.
Passive brackets, often used early on during treatment, encourage the teeth to start gradually moving into position. These brackets are made with a smaller archwire, making it easy for the teeth to move freely during treatment.
Active brackets deliver more pressure and control. With the thicker archwire, these strong brackets move the teeth into place more efficiently.
You can expect to pay around the same amount for self-ligating braces as you would for metal braces. Depending on your orthodontic problem’s severity and your individual needs, the amount can vary.
Here at Mik Orthodontics, we offer all our patients a consultation before beginning treatment. During this time, you’ll learn more about the cost of self-ligating braces as well as your insurance options and payment plans.
With two convenient locations in Fort Worth and Crowley, it’s easier for you to take advantage of the newest technologies and best orthodontic care. Give us a call at 817-730-6682 to schedule an initial consultation today.
