Clear Your Way to a Modern Smile

If you want a healthier, straighter smile without the visibility of traditional braces, self-ligating clear braces from Manning Orthodontics may be the treatment for you.

A Clear Alternative to Metal

While traditional braces are an effective way to properly align one’s teeth, they aren’t for everyone. That’s why Dr. Manning and our team offer a new alternative to traditional braces: self-ligating clear braces.

These innovative braces are not only more comfortable than traditional braces, but they also utilize clear brackets that not only make ceramic braces more discreet but also easier to adjust.

These aesthetically pleasing braces use innovative technology to improve on the concept of traditional braces, resulting in an orthodontic treatment that looks great and really works.

How Self-Ligating Clear Braces Work

Our clear braces use self-ligating force to get even more controlled results than traditional braces — but with less discomfort.

Self-ligating clear braces also allow for optimal treatment with fewer visits to the orthodontist, as they don’t need as much maintenance as traditional braces.

That’s because the self-ligating system doesn’t require elastic ties to hold the archwire in place — instead, a sliding mechanism braces the brackets so the wire can apply continuous, comfortable pressure to move your teeth into straighter alignment.

Because self-ligating clear braces don’t use plastic ligatures like other braces, your braces are less likely to stain while you are wearing them, making it easier to maintain the whiteness of your teeth.

Clear Benefits of Self-Ligating Ceramic Braces

Self-ligating clear braces come with many benefits that make them a viable and attractive option for many orthodontic patients. Here are just a few:

More Efficient Movement

Self-ligating clear braces don’t require colored elastic ties, so your clear braces move far more quickly and are easier to adjust than normal braces.

Streamlined Appearance

Clear braces at Manning Orthodontics are clear for a more discreet look. This also allows the braces to blend in with your teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing feel.

Improved Comfort

The low friction application of self-ligating clear braces means your teeth move more comfortably since the braces don’t require the friction of color ties.

No Staining

The sliding, self-ligating mechanism on our clear braces negates the need for color ties, so your braces won’t stain or turn yellow. This also decreases plaque accumulation, which means they’re easier to keep clean, resulting in better oral hygiene during your treatment.
