How do self-litigating braces work?
Self-litigating braces look much like traditional braces but eliminate the use of annoying rubber bands. Self-litigating braces use state of the art clip technology to adjust brackets automatically. The clips reduce waste and can save the patients time and extra trips to our orthodontist office.
Are self-litigating braces right for me?
Most patients who qualify for conventional or ceramic braces will have the option to choose self litigating braces. Dr. Izadi will help patients determine which style of braces will yield optimal results depending on the patient’s oral health, orthodontic concerns and goals.
