GC EXPERIENCE self-ligating braces use a passive slide mechanism to align teeth. This means that brackets are clipped to the archwire, instead of being tied with elastics. Self-ligating braces are completely tie-less!
This advanced bracket system minimizes friction to make braces more comfortable. It also allows teeth to move independently of each other (instead of moving in the same direction at once), which allows for a quicker, more efficient treatment process.
For patients who want a cool treatment alternative to traditional braces, GC EXPERIENCE self-ligating braces are an ideal option.
No, self-ligating braces don’t have colored rubber bands that need replacing, which means fewer orthodontist visits for you! At each appointment, your orthodontist (Dr. Morejón or Dr Andrews) will simply assess your progress to determine if any changes need to be made to your treatment plan.
