Henn System Self-Ligating Braces)
Like choosing the right doctor, choosing the right treatment option can be confusing. There are many options and many opinions available online and when you speak with friends. Knowing which one is right for you and your family is one of the most important decisions you can make because it can have a lifetime of impact.
But you’re lucky. Because you live near Henn Orthodontics! Getting to meet Dr. Henn is a wonderful way to learn more about him and his experience, but all you have to do is look at the smiles Dr. Henn creates to know that he’s special. You will be able to view pictures of before and after treatment and be able to find a similar smile as yours, and how it can look the day you are finished with your braces. You will see the difference in every smile.
Dr. Henn used to treat with traditional braces (old-fashioned) and quickly realized that he will never go back to those ways. Self-ligating treatment from Dr. Henn is more comfortable and requires fewer office visits, but what really sets this approach apart is that it’s treatment without “tightening”.

Orthodontics is a great way to increase your self-confidence, improve your dental health and create a beautiful smile you can share with everyone you meet. Our technology has changed the way we can treat orthodontic patients today. The revolutionary system we use utilizes a unique passive self-ligating bracket, and very light forces to achieve results beyond previously conceived expectations. Orthodontic treatment is now less time consuming and more comfortable than ever before. There is a general misconception that all braces and orthodontic treatments are the same. With all the options available today, it is more important than ever to carefully select what type of braces and technology are used. Our innovative technology not only helps produce beautiful smiles and straight teeth, but allows Dr.Henn to enhance facial changes as well. We have never before had such an influence on the bone and soft tissues that support and surround the teeth.
Traditional orthodontic therapy involves tying in archwires with colored elastics or small stainless steel wires thus a “tightening”. This can bind up the archwire and cause the teeth to move at a slower rate or in an unwanted direction. Heavy forces must be applied to overcome inherent friction in the traditional bracket system. These heavy forces can overpower or crush the very delicate underlying blood vessels cutting off oxygen and nutrients. This can be more painful, actually slow down tooth movement, and lengthen the time of treatment. For years, the traditional thinking was that heavy forces based on what a patient could tolerate were needed to move teeth.
We take a completely different approach. With our high-technology self-ligating braces and wires, very light natural forces can now be applied to move teeth at a much more efficient rate. This means less pressure on your teeth for more comfortable treatment. We can use very gentle pressure, working with the natural forces of your body. This allows your dental arches to develop the way they were always meant to. In most cases, this is accomplished in less time with fewer appointments and with far greater comfort!
Traditional braces use colored elastics to hold on to the archwire. Research shows these elastics hold much more bacteria around the tooth than the newer self-ligating brackets that we use. The elastics also have to be changed more frequently because they wear out and become stained over time. Self-ligating brackets have a unique sliding door instead of colored elastics to hold the wire, and thus can require fewer adjustments. The light force, high-technology wires can continue to work for a longer period of time. This means fewer office visits than with conventional braces. We want to make your treatment as comfortable as possible and fit easily into your busy schedule.
Amazingly, patients of all ages are enjoying more comfortable treatment in far less time! And people all around the world are experiencing startling transformations of the face and the smile that have never been seen before. Patients are experiencing treatment far different than they would have with traditional braces. Dr. Henn is proud to treat patients to the very highest level of care in a shorter period of time with far greater comfort, and with no “tightening”!
