Frictionless Brackets

content_friction.jpgFrictionless bracket systems use a slide mechanism to hold the wires, which allows teeth to move freely, quickly and comfortably. These low friction brackets plus the new high tech wires, which have shape memory and are temperature sensitive, allow less binding and pressure and the gentle forces make the braces experience more comfortable. The new frictionless brackets can result in faster treatment times and less pain in some cases.

In addition to greater comfort, the frictionless system makes it easier to maintain good hygiene. Why? Color ties which attract and collect plaque are no longer needed. Many companies now offer a frictionless system. Here are just a few examples: Damon, Empower, SPEED braces, and 3M SmartClip™.
