Self Ligating Brackets

Garlock Orthodontics

is pleased to offer self-ligating braces.

SelfLigating Brackets are one of the many technological advances in orthodontics. The science behind self-ligating braces is having a smooth metal door securing a wire in the bracket. Instead of utilizing a high friction rubber tie, teeth are freer 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 improving oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment. Therefore, self-ligating brackets are crucial to ensuring the best treatment possible for our patients!
