Self-Ligating Braces San Francisco
Image-conscious patients often prefer discreet braces but are not always candidates for Invisalign. In many such cases, patients can choose self-ligating braces instead. The smaller brackets used with this treatment are less noticeable than the larger conventional brackets. Furthermore, clear brackets can be used for an even lower profile.
Like traditional braces, self-ligating braces have broad eligibility requirements. Most patients of all ages can visit our San Francisco self-ligating braces expert for this treatment. Thanks to the greater adaptability of self-ligating brackets, these braces are less likely to require tooth extractions before treatment. Patients should, however, be prepared to face slightly higher costs for self-ligating braces compared to conventional orthodontics.
Several benefits over traditional braces are present with this option from our expert in self-ligating braces in San Francisco. Because these braces are also structured similarly to metal braces in many ways, a majority of patients can receive them. Patients can schedule a consultation with Dr. Amanda Cheng, our orthodontist in San Francisco, to find out if self-ligating braces are right for them.
