Self-Ligating Brackets

Self-ligating brackets do not need additional rubber or metal ligatures for merging the wires. The friction is substantially reduced during the tooth movement and leads to less pain and faster tooth movement. This form of bracket is the latest development in firmly-bonded treatment technology.

We use Quickclear Brackets. The ceramic basis and the small metal clips combine aesthetics and function.
Shorter treatment times
About 10-15% shorter treatment times - especially in the initial phase, self-ligating brackets with their low friction are slightly quicker in certain bad tooth positions.
Less pain
The first wires are attached more loosely to the self-ligating brackets, so that less force is applied to each individual tooth.
