Having a beautiful, straight smile is wonderful, but most people don’t want to spend more time in braces than they have to. Rivera Orthodontics is pleased to offer SPEED Braces as a treatment option to our patients in the El Paso, Texas area. With the self-ligating technology of SPEED Braces, you can get the smile you’ve always wanted with a faster treatment time, increased aesthetics, and amazing comfort.
SPEED Braces eliminate the need for the elastic ties used with traditional braces by using an energy-storing component called a Spring Clip™. The Spring Clip, made of a super-elastic material, follows the programmed instructions of your orthodontist by applying a light, continuous force to gently move your teeth to the correct position. The result is great comfort, potentially fewer appointments, and a SPEEDier treatment.
SPEED Braces are 1/3 smaller than standard braces. Because they are miniaturized appliances, they present minimal discomfort and irritation to lips, cheeks, and gums. This small size also reduces the change for food to get trapped in the brackets, and makes it easier to brush and floss. The streamlined, aesthetic appeal of these miniaturized braces makes it easy for you to smile with confidence while your teeth are being straightened.
SPEED Braces are manufactured by a leading North American aerospace company involved in the development of the highest precision component for next generation commercial and military aircraft. The same expertise that goes into making the world’s most advanced aircrafts goes into making SPEED Braces.
