Straighten Your Teeth And Improve Your Overall Appearance with Ceramic Bracket
What are ceramic brackets?
In past decades, braces were exclusively worn by children, most commonly in the age group of 10 to 14. However, this orthodontic treatment has recently become significantly popular among adults. This is mainly due to the growing availability of Clear Braces and Ceramic Brackets.
Braces are considered the best treatment option for crooked teeth or a misaligned bite. Metal or traditional braces are the most common type of braces that have been around for more than a century. With advances in technology, they have become smaller and comfortable, but require care and good oral hygiene throughout the treatment.
Why choose Ceramic Brackets?
Apart from correcting misaligned teeth, a lot of other conditions can be treated with braces. For example, malocclusion is a common orthodontic problem that can be easily corrected with ceramic braces. Ceramic Bracket is similar to a metal brace but is made of clear or tooth-coloured material that greatly reduces the prominence of their appearance on teeth.
Although these braces take a longer time to correct bites, they still remain a great option for individuals who want to keep their braces low-key. If you’re in need of braces, it is better to consult your dentist to determine if this orthodontic alternative is right for you.
Is Ceramic Bracket the only option?
Some patients don’t have issues with bite or alignment of teeth. Instead, they suffer from spacing issues that may result from missing teeth, small teeth, or other conditions.
In such cases, ceramic braces assist in bringing them close together, thus eliminating large gaps between the teeth. Tooth extractions can be necessary for patients with crowding issues. With timely intervention, crowding can be rectified with these braces, and tooth extraction can therefore be avoided. Unlike metal braces, they are less noticeable and can straighten their teeth in a discreet and affordable manner.
Am I a good candidate for ceramic Bracket?
Also, it is most popular among adults, who don’t think lingual braces or Invisalign are suitable for them.
Like traditional metal braces, ceramic brackets are first attached to the teeth, followed by placing an arch-wire within them, and are finally held in place with elastic.
In addition, ceramic braces are typically not covered by dental insurance plans, if they are used for cosmetic reasons. In such scenarios, you’ll need to purchase a separate orthodontic plan. Needless to say, they are among the most comfortable orthodontic treatments.
Some advantages of ceramic brackets are:
- Comfortable to wear:
In contrast to traditional braces, they use smaller, rounded ceramic brackets that are made of a lighter and less irritating material. Thanks to advances in technology, these braces eliminate the chances of demineralization of the enamel and are also far gentler on teeth, gums, and lips.
- Less visible:
The ceramic material is either clear or tooth-coloured in these braces. They are small, clear and nearly invisible and thus an attractive option for many potential patients. Fortunately, their design and application process has been refined over time, ensuring maximum durability.
- Colour customised:
The arch-wire can be coloured to match your teeth. This further reduces the visibility of your braces and also enhances your smile. Patients can choose from a variety of colour options like frost, silver, or white to find a matching arch-wire.
- Work faster than Invisalign:
Recent clear alignment options such as Invisalign usually take a year or longer to work even if there is a minor correction. Further, these methods cannot be used in severe cases of misalignment. Ceramic braces, on the other hand, offer faster treatment time.

Another advantage of ceramic braces is that they don’t interfere with imaging tests. However, metal braces have to be removed before testing as they can disrupt signals in magnetic resonance imaging or MRI scans. As a result of technological advances in a bonding material, Ceramic Bracket can come off easily when the treatment is completed.
Also, the treatment with these appliances is not suitable for all patients. Determining your needs will help you to narrow down your choices between a ceramic device and other alternatives. If you’re looking for a reliable and effective orthodontic solution that discreetly blends with your smile, they are an excellent option for you.
