Self-Ligating Braces

In the early years of orthodontics, braces were extremely bulky, uncomfortable, and just plain unattractive.

The industry has come a long way regarding orthodontic technology, and we’re excited to offer the latest and greatest self-ligating braces to our patients at Bernstein Orthodontics.

Our Pitts 21 self-ligating braces are a revolutionary treatment option that provides greater comfort, faster results, and fewer appointments. Sounds great, right?

These braces are unique because it uses low friction and light force to move your teeth into place with greater control and better results.

Instead of using elastics to hold the wire in place, Pitts 21 brackets use a slide mechanism. This puts less pressure on your teeth and makes treatment more comfortable.

The brackets are smaller too, which also helps with your comfort level (and makes them less noticeable than some other bracket types).

More About Self-Ligating Braces

Because of the advanced technology used by these self-ligating brackets, the wires don’t need to be adjusted nearly as often as other braces, so you won’t have to miss as much school or work.

Smile Arc Protection braces are placed higher and closer to your gums than traditional braces. This gives you a wider smile that shows more of your newly straightened teeth.

Invisalign® Touch Up

Unlike traditional braces, this kind of orthodontic treatment doesn't use brackets and wires to straighten your teeth.

The Invisalign system and our customized clear aligners use clear trays that are removable and nearly invisible.

Their soft plastic also means no friction or abrasions inside your mouth, so they're more comfortable to wear.

You'll change the aligners weekly for the next in the series, and when worn, the recommended 20-22 hours per day will gradually move your teeth into the best position for your smile.

Orthodontics for Teens

At Bernstein Orthodontics, we know the value of a beautiful smile. We see it every day in our patients.

Teenagers leave our offices in Santa Rosa and Windsor with beaming, confident smiles to take on the world. That’s what makes our job worthwhile!

One of the most popular options for teens is our self-ligating braces that come in both traditional and clear options! With this revolutionary self-ligating technology, the metal wire is held into place by a moveable component instead of elastic ties.

This allows your teeth to move more freely, providing a more comfortable orthodontic experience.

Orthodontics for Adults

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for children and teens. The benefits of having a great smile don’t have a shelf life; luckily, neither does your ability to reach it.

These days, many of the treatment possibilities are for adults self-conscious about wearing traditional braces or wanting the fastest treatment possible. In fact, one in every five patients at Bernstein Orthodontics is over the age of 21.

Modern technologies like Invisalign and self-ligation help Dr. Bernstein treat patients with fewer extractions, shorter treatment times, and more comfortable techniques. Clear brackets or tray solutions can make it look like you’re not wearing braces at all.
