Henry Schein SLX bracket braces are one of the latest in self-ligating technology. Like other self-ligating bracket system braces, they offer faster treatment times with fewer appointments. Instead of elastic ties holding wires tightly against the teeth creating friction and discomfort, these braces move more freely and gently, while still eliciting the force needed to gain excellent results.
Patients who use SLX bracket braces are surprised at the comfort they feel while in treatment. In fact, these braces cause hardly any discomfort at all during the course of treatment. After the first few days it will take your mouth to get used to having something new around all the time, you’ll hardly notice your low-profile braces. SLX bracket braces place reduced pressure on your teeth, and have smooth, rounded edges so there is very little irritation.
Everyone deserves a smile they can be proud of, and orthodontics shouldn’t be relegated to only adolescents. You are never too old to get the smile of your dreams – not only will you face the world more confidently, but you can also prevent oral health issues from becoming a problem. And with SLX bracket braces, you can have that smile quicker than ever before. These brackets move teeth faster, and require 40% fewer office visits, on average.
When your smile is crooked and crowded, it is harder to clean, which can put you at risk for decay and gum disease. Misaligned teeth also put excessive strain on the jaw muscles and can damage your teeth and jaw bones. Orthodontic treatment can prevent these issues, and can save you time and money later in life.
SLX bracket braces are sleeker and more difficult for plaque to build up on, helping you keep your smile healthier during treatment. The free-sliding technique moves teeth quickly without discomfort. Their unique design allows us to achieve more precise results.
The cost of treatment depends on several factors, but the average cost of self-ligating braces is between $3,800 and $8,000. If you have dental insurance that includes orthodontic treatment, this can be a big help in defraying some of the cost. A financial coordinator can help you discover what your benefits may offer.
