Here at Class 1 Orthodontics we want your orthodontic treatment journey to be as positive and carefree as possible. That’s why we have moved exclusively to self-ligating braces. We believe these braces will significantly improve your orthodontic treatment experience.
Self-ligating braces are one of the orthodontic industry’s most recognised technical developments. The engineering behind these braces is second to none. At Class 1 Orthodontics, we’re excited to be using the latest in orthodontic appliances for the benefit of you, our patients, and the system of self-ligating braces we offer is exactly that!
What are self-ligating braces?
From a distance, self-ligating braces look much like traditional braces, but upon closer inspection there’s a noticeable difference.

They also require elastics or clips to ‘bind’ the wire into place, holding it in position to move your teeth.
Self-ligating braces on the other hand, uses a slide mechanism that eliminates the need for this. What does this mean? In short, it means less force is applied to your teeth to move them into position, which means less pressure on your teeth and a more comfortable orthodontic treatment experience.
