Next generation, self-ligating Pitts 21 Braces for a Hollywood smile

Created to answer a lot of the issues with traditional metal braces, the Pitts 21 braces system is low-friction and low-force for exceptional comfort and fast results. This new generation of braces give quality results in a short space of time with far greater comfort.

Self-ligating braces don’t need those old-fashioned, coloured elastic bands that most people associate with wearing braces. They have specially engineered, spring loaded clips that exert low amounts of pressure on the teeth to bring them into alignment. This slowly tightens over time, using the sliding mechanism built into the clips.

Why choose

Pitts 21 Braces?

Gentle but precise, Pitts 21 braces by Wu Orthodontics give you the Hollywood smile you have been dreaming of, far faster than you might imagine. Due to their efficient design, you won’t need lengthy, inconvenient visits to the practice for tightening. The self-ligating design does all the hard work, ensuring healthy tooth movement and complete control of your winning smile.

After an initial period of getting used to the braces, patients find them incredibly comfortable. Unlike other styles of metal braces, the self-ligating clips and the wire are soft against the inside of your lips. Pitts 21 braces have been engineered to protrude less than other styles, which also greatly reduces potential sources of irritation.

Benefits of

Smile Arc Protection -

why are the braces placed so high?

SAP-VID-Smile-Comparison Wu Orthodontics Palo Alto CA Smile Arc Protection (SAP) / Vertical Incisor Display (VID) brackets are placed more gingival (closer to gums) than traditional brackets, resulting in a beautiful curved smile line and increased tooth display.

Smile Arc is when the edges of your top teeth follow the curve of your lower lip. The ideal Smile Arc has full teeth display with curvature parallel to the curvature of the lower lip, as shown in the diagram to the right. A straight, flat smile is less pleasing than a curved smile. A reverse curve where the front teeth appear to be shorter than the canines gives a look of ageing and wear, and can be quite unattractive.
