Making orthodontic care more efficient and more comfortable.
Self-ligation is an innovative orthodontic technology that makes wearing braces more efficient and more comfortable
than ever before. Unlike traditional braces, which involve tying archwires in with elastic ties, self-ligating brackets feature a "sliding door" that holds a high-tech super-elastic archwire in place, allowing it to slide freely back and forth. This results in more patient comfort because there is less pressure to the teeth. For over two decades, Dr. Roger B. Elton has stayed at the forefront of the technological advances in orthodontics, and he is proud to offer you several brands of self-ligating braces, including the Damon® System from Ormco and the SmartClip™ System from 3M Unitek.
