Metal self-ligating braces are an orthodontic treatment that has been advanced compared to traditional ones. Many advantages of this treatment are made patient choose them: no elastics, shorter duration, easy to clean and more aesthetics
What are metal self-ligating braces ?
To keep the archwire in the bracket, traditional metal braces use a bracket, archwire, and elastic. This method is effective, but it is easy to break the elastic band and lose the archwire while wearing brackets, so it is necessary to visit the dental clinic frequently to adjust. Self-ligating metal braces were invented to overcome these drawbacks by replacing the elastic band system with automatic latches/self-ligating.
Is metal self-ligating braces effective ?
There are some aspects that need to be considered to assess metal self-ligating braces’s effectiveness. Here is pros and cons of metal self-ligating braces:
Beauty: Without a rubber band, the patient’s teeth will not darken, allowing the patient to communicate more confidently. Braces are less noticeable when there are fewer colors and accessories.
Shorter duration: The arch wire slides freely in the bracket thanks to the automatic locking system, and the teeth come in evenly and stably. Braces are less time consuming than traditional methods because teeth move continuously.
Minimizing archwire loss: There is no need for an elastic band because of the automatic latch, and there is no risk of the archwire slipping due to archwire expansion.
Easy to clean: The base’s smooth rounded edges and lack of corners help to keep the oral mucosa from being scratched. Furthermore, the feeling of comfort when eating, as opposed to being entangled, makes oral hygiene easier.
Reducing friction on the arch wires in brackets and the traction of teeth moving, helping people with braces minimize pain and discomfort when wearing brackets
No need to go to the dentist repeatedly: The bracket moves automatically, so you don’t have to go to the clinic as frequently to adjust the wire.
Although the automatic bracket overcomes the disadvantage of the traditional bracket elastic band of easy 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 self-ligating metal braces
When compared to traditional braces, self-ligating metal braces can help you save 4-6 months on braces. The precise time to wear braces is determined by how the brackets are worn, the condition of your teeth, and the age of the person wearing the brackets. The sooner your braces are placed, the faster they will work. Braces typically last between 12 and 24 months.

Are self-ligating braces bigger?
Passive Self Ligating Braces (PSLB)
These braces make use of a smaller archwire to maximize space between each bracket. This combination of design elements significantly reduces friction while allowing the appliance to move more freely.
Can self-ligating braces break?
Treatment times may be slowed due to a higher likelihood of breakage: the “locking door” of the self-ligating brackets can break or loosen, necessitating repair and potentially slowing treatment times.
How do you brush with self-ligating braces?
Brush your gum line first, at a 45-degree angle with your toothbrush. Next, clean the brackets by brushing at a downward angle on top of the brackets and an upward angle on the bottom. After brushing, rinse once more.
Do 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 self-ligating braces less painful?
The absence of elastic bands reduces friction and the amount of force required to hold a patient’s teeth in place. As a result, patients have less tooth erosion or deterioration, as well as less discomfort. Patients have reported a 60% reduction in pain. This is in comparison to traditional brackets.
