Self-Ligating Braces

At SmileHaus Orthodontics, it is our philosophy to provide our patients with the most advanced and progressive treatment methodologies to ensure treatment is comfortable, efficient and successful. Dr. Thompson learned about a new self-ligating technology and has since implemented the technology in her practice.

Self-ligating braces are a revolutionary treatment option that provides greater comfort, reduces treatment times and requires fewer appointments. This treatment meets our standard of care and is the only type of metal braces we offer.  It provides a low-friction, light force to move teeth into place with optimal control to provide greater comfort and better results.


The brackets are smaller, providing a more comfortable and discreet orthodontic experience.  With the treadlock pattern, we can achieve greater bond strength to help keep brackets in place.  

Using this technology saves you time too!  Selft-ligating braces require fewer appointments so you don't have to miss as much school and/or work for wire adjustments.
