Fewer Visits & Straight Teeth Up To 35% Faster At Caggiano Orthodontics
“So you love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of.”
Time – it’s of utmost importance in day-to-day life. Many decisions we make often have an effect on our allotment of time. For example, the choice of your Parsippany orthodontist and the type of braces your orthodontist uses can change the amount of time you must spend getting your dream smile.
At Caggiano Orthodontics, we value your time. It is our goal to get you your new smile with the fewest visits possible, minimizing the impact of your treatment on your free time. That is why Dr. Caggiano uses the latest high-tech braces, also called self-ligating braces.
What does self-ligating actually mean? It’s actually quite simple; the archwires are usually tied into – ligated – to the braces with so-called elastics or color ties. With self-ligating braces, the wire is continually pushed into the braces by a clip. In other words, they are self-adjusting! This makes life easier – the self ligating clip is continually adjusting itself, so it doesn’t need to be replaced by elastics or colored ties. This means you need fewer visits for treatment. Also, the wires can be placed more quickly, which shortens the length of your visit accordingly. Lastly, the disadvantage of the old braces and the colored ties was that a lot of friction was created. This meant more force was needed, which was more uncomfortable for patients. With self ligating braces, the force levels needed are lower due to lower friction, making your treatment more comfortable. This also means that the braces can slide along the wire with less friction, which may even shorten the entire length of treatment.
In short, self-ligating braces give you more time to spend on living! Isn’t technology great?
