China Self Ligating Bracket
Sep 14, 2018

With the rapid development of China's economy and the enhancement of people's awareness of oral health care, more and more patients choose orthodontic treatment to improve the alignment of teeth and acquire charming smiles. When the doctor finished the detailed orthodontic analysis and diagnosis and the orthodontic design for the patient, the patient was then faced with the problem of choosing the orthodontic appliance, "bracket", and faced with various brackets, the patient did not know how to choose.

There are many friends who want to correct their teeth because they are not tidy. However, I am worried about the pain of teeth after wearing braces, which will affect my eating and life. In fact, you don't have to worry about it. Using self-locking brackets, LF brackets, transmission brackets, Z2 brackets and other light force to correct the brackets can completely solve these problems. Light force correction can make the alveolar bone remodeling in orthodontic tooth movement appear physiological, and can reduce the discomfort and pain in the process of orthodontic treatment, which is known to clinical orthodontists for decades.


In recent years, self-locking rectification technology and low-friction light force correction system have emerged one after another, making light force correction a fact.

For the correction of teeth by self-locking brackets, which aspects should be paid attention to:

1. The sense of pain is greatly reduced: the previous steel wire bracket is easy to be rubbed against the mouth, and some of the pain is felt. However, the comfortable and gentle orthodontic force of the self-locking bracket reduces the discomfort of the orthodontic patients a lot.


2. Shorter treatment time: the teeth move rapidly under the action of low friction.


3. Extended time distance for the return visit: the traditional fixed orthodontic return visit distance is about 4 weeks, that is, the patient needs to be adjusted to the hospital once a month; The reexamination distance can be extended to 8 ~ 10 weeks by using self-locking brackets, and the arch wire has enough time to move the teeth. That is to say, the patient comes to the hospital every 2 months to adjust once.

4.Avoid tooth extraction: some patients who previously needed tooth extraction treatment can now avoid tooth extraction because of the extremely low friction of self-locking brackets and easier tooth movement.

Sometimes during the orthodontic process, the brackets fall off: generally, the brackets do not fall off completely, but slide back and forth on the arch wire. However, if the last bracket falls off, the brackets may fall off completely, so it is necessary to collect the missing brackets and timely contact the doctor for re-pasting.


The arch wire is inserted into the mouth: after the teeth are aligned, the arch wire slides left and right, so that the side of the bow wire is too long to tie the mouth. At this time, it can be protected with the mucosa wax first to prevent the arch wire from tearing the mucosa and other soft tissues, and at the same time, it can contact the doctor for help in a timely manner.

Wire nozzles: the non-self-locking brackets shall be connected with the brackets by ligature wire or ligation ring. When using the ligation wire, the broken segment of the ligation wire may be stretched out due to chewing or other reasons, and the injured soft tissue such as mucosa can be tied. After washing hands, the steel segment can be pressed back to the bottom of the bow wire by facing the mirror. If it doesn't work, use a mucosa wax protector and ask your doctor for help.
