Self-ligating braces are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics, meaning fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets. They are the same size as metal braces, but use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the arch wire guide teeth into place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth, and requires fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.
How are In-Ovation R braces different?
In-Ovation R braces utilize a patented clip that engages the wire in the braces. This creates a free-sliding effect which reduces friction to allow teeth to move freely. As a result, you have less discomfort and faster treatment than with traditional braces.
Elastics and ties used in older braces put pressure and friction on teeth which slows treatment and causes discomfort. In-Ovation self-ligating metal braces do not use unsightly elastics or ties, In-Ovation R uses a clip mechanism to hold the wire in place.
