5 Advantages of Self-Ligating Braces Milton, GA
Woman with braces

Self-Ligating braces are one of the latest orthodontic treatment methods available. This system uses self-ligating braces, which means it doesn’t involve elastic ligatures or ties to adjust the tension on the brackets. Instead, a self-ligating sliding mechanism comfortably and effectively move the teeth into proper position.

Why choose self-ligating braces? The system offers a number of advantages over traditional metal braces. It is safe and effective for kids, teens and adults.

Less Visible:  Self-Ligating braces are marketed as an ideal combination of traditional clear braces and invisible aligners. It is an orthodontic solution that is nearly invisible to others, a significant advantage for career-oriented adults and socially conscious teens who do not want the embarrassment of wearing metal brackets and wires.

Faster Results:  Less treatment time is a major appeal for most patients. Orthodontic treatment goals can be achieved in must less time using a self-ligating system. In fact, the time can be cut by as much as six months compared to traditional metal braces!

More Convenient:  With fewer appointments needed throughout your treatment, self-ligating braces offer valuable timesaving convenience for busy patients.

More Comfortable: Self-Ligating braces do not involve any type of friction since it does not have metal or elastic ligatures against the teeth.  This creates a more comfortable experience as the teeth slide into better position over time. This also means that it is gentler on your teeth too!

More Hygienic: A major drawback to traditional braces is the challenge of maintaining proper dental hygiene, as plaque and bacteria often accumulate in hard to reach places within the elastic bands. With self-ligating braces, there are no ligatures to trap food and cavity-causing bacteria, allowing brushing and flossing to be more effective and easier. This makes for a cleaner, healthier smile when the braces are removed.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
