Self-ligating Braces

What Are Pitts Braces?

The Pitts 21TM system is a low-friction, self-ligating system of braces that offers 3D control throughout treatment for accurate and predictable results. It features lighter appliances and more precise movement for shorter treatment times. Additionally, since they are self-ligating, Pitts braces don’t use rubber bands, making them more discreet than traditional metal braces.

What Makes Pitts Braces Unique?

Aside from advancements in comfort, speed, hygiene, and control, the Pitts system is unique in the placement of the actual brackets. Part of the Pitts system is Smile Arc Protection (SAP) and Vertical Incisor Display (VID), which means the brackets can be placed further up and closer to the gums on the tooth surface than traditional brackets. This increases tooth visibility, creates a curved smile line, and results in a more aesthetic smile — all while improving appliance performance.
