self-ligating brackets is the most complete self ligating bracket system in the world. Whether you choose metal or clear, this award winning bracket enhances your treatment expertise.
Two of the most common questions orthodontists hear from new patients are about the length of treatment and the comfort level they will experience in braces. The third is how visible will they be.
Although highly effective (and usually more cost effective), traditional braces are always the subject of scrutiny when it comes to both of those issues.

Although the popularity of this bracket style has climbed over the last 10 years or so, the system itself has been around since the mid-1930s. There are numerous manufacturers of this type of bracketing system.
Here are some of the facts you should consider before making a decision about whether to choose self-ligating braces.
