Dentist North Houston, Independence Heights TX Announces Braces without Elastic

Dr. Behzad Nazari from Independence Heights in the North Houston, TX area is announcing self-ligating braces that don't need any elastic. He is also holding a charity campaign for the Houston Food Bank while giving away free dental services to the community.

Antoine Dental Center recently announced their advanced self-ligating braces for patients on their Facebook page. These braces are different from conventional types because they do not need elastic ties to enhance their effectiveness. They also have many other benefits, which patients are encouraged to take advantage of.

Conventional braces were made of high quality stainless steel and consisted of metal brackets and arch wires. These two components, when adjusted over a period of time, would produce the tension that was necessary to move teeth to their correct position. They also needed elastic ties to tighten the arch wires as required.

Dr. Nazari of Antoine Dental Center offers patients an alternative for aligning their teeth that does not involve the use of elastic ties, which many find off-putting. In the post, he explained that although self-ligating braces look similar to conventional braces, their brackets have a special clip that allows the arch wire to move smoothly, thus moving the teeth into place progressively.

The Houston dentist explained the benefits of the self-ligating braces: “There are many benefits,” he said.

“You will need fewer appointments to make adjustments, and the improved efficiency of your braces will result in a shorter treatment time. Lower-profile brackets often equal greater oral comfort for many patients, too,” he explained, describing how they are much better than the conventional ones.

Dr. Nazari’s post goes further to explain how self-ligating braces also offer patients the opportunity to pick the type that they want. For instance, patients can go for the ceramic brackets option. Ceramic braces are less noticeable than their metallic counterparts, although they are more fragile. Even so, patients are free to choose which type they want based on their preferences and what works best for them.
