Treatment That’s Barely Noticeable, Even Up Close
At TS Orthodontics, you can enjoy easier, faster treatment with Empower® self-ligating ceramic braces in Rutherfordton, NC. Empower ceramic braces are more comfortable and more efficient because of their self-ligating features and streamlined design. They are also nearly invisible since they typically match the color of your teeth, so you can enjoy a treatment that’s discreetly under the radar.
What Are Self-Ligating Braces?
Braces typically have two main components: the bracket (or brace) that is glued to each tooth, and the wire (or archwire) that connects to the brackets and places pressure on your teeth. Self-ligating is a fancy way of saying that each bracket can attach to the archwire by itself. You don’t need elastics or rubber bands to connect the archwire to your braces.
What Are the Benefits of Self-Ligating Braces?
Our ceramic self-ligating braces can improve your orthodontic experience in several ways. These include:
- Faster overall treatment – The bracket clips that hold onto the archwire allow your braces to provide the right amount of pressure on the right teeth at the right angle – and they can do this far more effectively than rubber bands. That means your teeth can move into their newly straightened position more quickly, shortening your overall time in braces!
- Fewer visits to the orthodontist – Ceramic self-ligating braces don’t need to be adjusted as often as traditional metal braces with rubber bands. That means less time in Dr. Scanlan’s chair and more time doing the things you love!
- Increased comfort – Empower braces are smaller and more streamlined than traditional metal braces, so you’ll experience less discomfort throughout your treatment.
- Discreet treatment – If you choose ceramic, self-ligating braces, you’ll also enjoy a more subtle appearance for your braces. With our clear braces, your friends, family, and co-workers might not even notice you’re wearing braces at all!
