How Do Clear Ceramic Braces Work?
Clear ceramic braces work similarly to traditional metal braces, with some subtle differences that make for big changes. Metal braces are comprised of metal brackets and archwires. Clear ceramic braces employ this same technique for straightening teeth, but instead of metal, the brackets are made of a tooth-colored ceramic. This tooth-colored material is what makes the braces appear “clear”. Tooth-colored wires can be applied, as well, for nearly invisible treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Clear Ceramic Braces?
Now that you know how clear ceramic braces work, you can understand the many benefits of this orthodontic treatment, including:
- They are virtually invisible: the tooth-colored aspects of this appliance is perfect for those who are worried about the appearance of other orthodontic treatments. This is particularly appealing as a form of adult orthodontic treatment because many adults prefer to maintain their appearance in their workplace, at home, etc.
- They are comfortable: ceramic materials provide a smooth, comfortable surface for braces. Your clear braces will have ample access to the insides of your cheeks and lips, and these braces won’t cut or tear.
- They are effective: increasing the amount of comfort and concealability does not decrease the effectiveness of your treatment. Clear ceramic braces are equally as effective as other top orthodontic treatments.
