The best advantage of self ligating brackets are that they are very clean. You do not have tiny elastics around each tooth so they dont turn yellow and cleaning is more efficient. Extraction depends on the level of malocclusion. Creating space is required if crowding is too much. Even if you use self lighting brackets, youmay require extraction. Do see an orthodontist to get yourself evaluated

Self ligating braces are better as it shortens the treatment time, and the number of appointments along with the appointment time gets lesser. Since they don't have extra elastics around each bracket, they are comparatively neater and easier to clean than conventional brackets. As far as the extraction is concerned, it does make possible for some cases to be proceeded without extraction, but not all. That depends on the case. Kindly visit your nearby Orthodontist to find out more about how suitable it is for you.

SLB braces are a newer generation of braces which have very less friction between the brackets and wire, so in other words,they have faster movement. Regarding tooth extraction, it's not true for all cases, certain kind of crowding and proclination cases, can be made in to non extraction Cases.
