Self-ligating braces are metal just like traditional braces, though you won’t need to use elastic bands. This means that you will require fewer follow-up appointments and have even less friction on your teeth.

Some self-ligating braces use ceramic or even clear brackets. They use a specialized clip instead of elastics to keep the wires in place. These clips decrease the pressure on the teeth.
