Most people who hear "braces" think of a mouth full of metal. But braces have evolved over the years, offering several options to patients. At Zombek Orthodontics, we'll help you decide if braces are the best treatment for you, and we'll lay out all your best options so you can make an informed decision without fear.
Self-ligating braces don't use elastics, which means fewer appointments and less friction on the tooth. That means more comfort because there is less pressure on the tooth and fewer adjustments.
Self-ligating braces can be the traditional metal braces, or you can choose ceramic or clear braces. The ceramic and clear braces blend better with the teeth, so you can have more confidence in your smile during treatment.
Self-ligating braces use a clip to hold the archwire in place, rather than elastics. The specialized clip doesn't need as many adjustments as traditional braces with elastics, so you'll have less discomfort during treatment.
These braces work well for both adults and children. They provide efficient treatment for both age groups. The clear and ceramic braces are great options for adults who may feel self-conscious about having braces.

Every LightForce treatment plan is individually designed based on your unique tooth shape, jawline, and facial structure, enabling a perfect fit throughout the straightening process. Spend less time in the orthodontist’s chair, and more time living your life.
