The price of self-ligating metal braces is a concern of many patients when coming to Da Nang Implant dentistry and those questions will be answered through this article.

1. What are self-ligating metal braces?

Self-ligating metal braces is an aesthetic orthodontic technique that uses brackets that can automatically open and close to keep the wire from slipping on the jaw. Automatically opening and closing latches are used to replace colorful elastic bands commonly found in fixed braces. The new improved structure is the outstanding advantage, and is also the reason why the price of self-ligating metal braces is higher than regular metal braces.

2. How are self-ligating metal braces different from regular braces?

The basic difference between self-ligating metal braces and fixed metal braces is the elastic band and automatic latch.

With regular metal braces, the brackets are connected by wires and fixed with elastic on the teeth. Although they have high elasticity, after a period of use, these elastics will easily come off, reducing the friction of the wire in the bracket groove, causing the brackets to easily slip off the teeth.

As for braces with self-ligating metal braces, do not use elastic. Instead, use pins that can be opened and closed flexibly to help fix the wire in the bracket groove. The archwires can slide freely in the bracket groove, helping to maintain a more stable force while minimizing friction. This is why the orthodontist will have less pain and the arch wire will also less likely to come loose. Besides, automatic metal braces have small and round faces, so oral hygiene is easier.

How will this sliding latch system be created? Before creating braces, the orthodontist will carefully measure and calculate the size of each tooth to create braces with exact measurements for the teeth. Thanks to that, self-ligating metal braces often bring higher efficiency and shorter treatment time than the classic method.
