Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces have been used for decades for orthodontic treatment. In traditional metal braces, the wire is engaged into the bracket using an elastic module or a steel ligature. This caused friction and the tooth movement was slower. The elastic module which was used to secure the wire into the brackets attracted food particles and was difficult to maintain oral hygiene during the course of orthodontic treatment. This in turn caused inflammation of gums and cavities due to lack of maintenance during orthodontic treatment. To overcome friction, more force was applied which caused considerable pain and discomfort to the patient.
To Overcome this problem, Self ligation braces were introduced. Self Ligation braces have reduced friction during orthodontic treatment. As there is no need of an elastic module or steel ligature for securing the wire, oral hygiene can be maintained better due to less accumulation of food particles around braces.
