Self-ligating or Frictionless Braces

Self-ligating (or frictionless) braces eliminate the need for the ligature (elastic) ties that wrap around each bracket and secure the wire to the bracket.

In theory, this system of braces allows for less-binding of the wire to the bracket – creating a smoother (frictionless) movement of the tooth along the wire, with more potential for arch development (expansion).

Dr. Ko or Dr. Yoon will discuss with you during your initial consultation whether or not self-ligating brackets would best serve your treatment needs.
