For teenagers and adults alike, traditional braces can be frustrating. The tooth pain and gum irritation as well as the heavy-duty maintenance can make getting straighter teeth a tedious and lengthy process. At Ragan Orthodontics, we now offer a quicker, more comfortable solution – the Carriere® Self-Ligating Bracket System.
Serving the Dallas area, Ragan Orthodontics has three convenient locations in Park Cities, Lakewood and Preston Hollow. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and find out how this innovative new system is gaining popularity nationwide.
What is the Carriere® Self-Ligating Bracket System?
Designed to provide more comfort than traditional braces, the Carriere® system moves teeth more naturally and can shorten treatment time by at least 4 months.
The bracket system exerts low pressure and low force on the mouth, maximizing patient comfort for more efficient treatment. These reduced forces on the teeth are more compatible with the body, whereas the higher pressure and force on the mouth from traditional braces can be counterproductive to both the patient and treatment.
In addition to improved functionality, the Carriere® Self-Ligating Bracket System also has a smooth, low profile while inside of the mouth, decreasing irritation to the lips and gums.
What Are the Benefits of the Carriere® Self-Ligating Bracket System?
- It’s faster. In comparison to other alignment systems, the Carriere® Self-Ligating Bracket System requires fewer appointments with more time in between. The total treatment time is also reduced by at least four months.
- It’s natural. The Carriere® Self-Ligating Bracket System allows teeth to move more freely, stimulating cellular activity without obstructing blood vessels in the periodontal ligament.
- It’s gentle. By reducing the amounts of force and pressure in the mouth, the Carriere® system creates tooth movement that is more biologically compatible. This significantly reduces pain and discomfort during the treatment process.
- It’s convenient. Offering tooth-specific brackets, less rebonding and fewer wire adjustments, this system does not require the frequent appointments and extensive maintenance that other systems do.
