Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating brackets are the next generation of braces. This revolutionary new system of braces works faster than traditional braces, shortening appointment time and overall treatment time. We only use top-of-the line, high-quality, American-made self-ligating braces.

These advanced teeth braces are designed for comfort. The brackets are smaller than traditional brackets, and the self-ligating mechanism produces virtually friction-free tooth movement. Plus, self-ligating braces don’t have to use colored ties, so they’re easier to keep clean. Choose from stainless steel (metal) or beautiful clear braces in Las Vegas.

How do self ligating braces work?

Self-ligating braces use a specialized clip or ‘door’ to hold the archwire into the bracket, instead of an colored tie or metal tie. This clip slide mechanism helps to reduce the amount of pressure placed on each tooth, which reduces friction, and decreases the number of office visits required during treatment. Your Las Vegas braces treatment will be quick and efficient!

Traditional Metal Braces

Perhaps the most well-known form of braces is traditional metal braces. Younger patients love to get creative with their braces colors! These bands are functionally necessary to hold the wire into the bracket, but they also allow for some unique creativity. We use self-ligating braces, because they are one of the most efficient and comfortable types of Las Vegas braces.

Invisalign & Clear Aligners

We also offer different clear aligner options as an alternative to braces! Choose from Invisalign® or ClearCorrect.

Clear aligner therapy works in a series of transparent, plastic aligners that fit over the top teeth and bottom teeth. These aligners are removable, comfortable, virtually-undetectable, and highly effective.
