Metal self-ligating braces are a more sophisticated orthodontic therapy than traditional braces. Several advantages of this therapy have led to its popularity among patients, including the absence of elastics, a shorter duration, ease of cleaning, and better aesthetics.
What are metal self-ligating braces ?
Traditional metal braces include a bracket, archwire, and elastic to maintain the archwire in place. While wearing brackets, it is easy to break the elastic band and lose the archwire, thus it is important to visit the dental clinic periodically to adjust. To address these shortcomings, self-ligating metal braces were developed, which replaced the elastic band technique with automated latches/self-ligating.
Are metal self-ligating braces effective ?
Several factors must be addressed while evaluating the efficiency of metal self-ligating braces. Following are the benefits and drawbacks of metal self-ligating braces:
Beauty: The patient’s teeth will not discolor if a rubber band is not used, allowing the patient to talk more confidently. When there are fewer colors and accessories, braces are less obvious.
Shorter duration: Because of the automated locking mechanism, the arch wire glides freely in the bracket, and the teeth come in evenly and solidly. Because teeth shift continually, braces take less time than older procedures.
Minimizing archwire loss: Because of the automated latch, there is no need for an elastic band, and there is no chance of the archwire slipping owing to archwire expansion.
Easy to clean: The base’s smooth rounded edges and lack of corners serve to prevent scratching of the mouth mucosa. Also, the sensation of ease when eating, as opposed to being entangled, facilitates dental hygiene.
Lowering friction on bracket arch wires and the traction of teeth moving, assisting persons with braces in minimizing pain and discomfort when wearing brackets
There is no need to visit the dentist on a regular basis: Because the bracket moves automatically, you won’t have to visit the clinic as regularly to have the wire adjusted.
Although the automated bracket addresses the typical bracket elastic band’s issue of simple removal, it still has the following disadvantages:
- Braces are visible clearly so in compare with Invisalign and ceramic braces, this method is considered to be less aesthetic
- Higher price than traditional method’
- The locking mechanism may break or get stuck, requiring repair and slowing down treatment
- Smaller brackets may be less effective when rotating larger teeth
Duration of metal self-ligating braces
Self-ligating metal braces can help you save 4-6 months on braces as compared to regular braces. The exact time to wear braces depends on how the brackets are worn, the health of your teeth, and the age of the individual wearing the brackets. The sooner you have your braces on, the faster they will work. Braces normally last 12 to 24 months.
Dentists at BeDental will assist patients in bracing and avoiding tooth extraction with the use of Damon and the F.A.C.E technique.

Are metal self-ligating braces bigger?
Passive Self Ligating Braces (PSLB)
To optimize the space between each bracket, metal self-ligating braces employ a smaller archwire. This design combination minimizes friction substantially while allowing the appliance to move more freely.
Can metal self-ligating braces break?
Treatment times may be slowed due to an increased probability of breakage: the self-ligating brackets’ “locking door” might break or loosen, forcing maintenance and thus slowing treatment durations.
How do you brush with metal self-ligating braces?
Brush your gum line first, at a 45-degree angle, with your toothbrush. Then, brush the brackets with a downward angle on top and an upward angle on the bottom. After brushing, rinse one more.
Do metal self-ligating braces need tightening?
They do need to be tightened, but not as frequently, and it’s a simpler and faster process.
Why are metal self-ligating braces less painful?
The lack of elastic bands minimizes friction and the amount of effort necessary to secure a patient’s teeth. As a consequence, patients have reduced tooth erosion or degradation, as well as less pain. Patients reported a 60% decrease in discomfort. When compared to standard brackets.
