Self-Ligating Braces – Cedar Hill, TX

A New, More Efficient Way
to Straighten Teeth

Our team wants to make orthodontic treatment as efficient, comfortable, and stress-free as possible, which is why we’re offering a newer technology: self-ligating braces. As opposed to traditional metal braces, which require the use of elastic ties or bands to connect the wires to the brackets, self-ligating braces function without them, and there are several valuable benefits to this new approach. If you’d like to start exploring orthodontic options in greater detail, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation with Dr. Valant here in Cedar Hill today.
