Self Ligating Brackets

Garlock Orthodontics

is pleased to offer self-ligating braces.

One of the many technological advances in the field of orthodontics. The science behind self-ligating braces is the idea that by having a smooth metal door holding the wire in the bracket, instead of a high friction rubber tie, teeth are more free to slide along the wire, resulting in less discomfort, faster treatment times, shorter appointment times, fewer trips to the orthodontist, and teeth that are easier to clean.


The self-ligating brackets used in our office are truly versatile, coming in metal, ceramic and tooth colors.

The most significant and evidence based advantage of a self-ligating bracket is the ease of and improvement of oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment. Self-ligating brackets are one important way that our office ensures the best treatment possible for our patients!
