What Are Clear Ceramic Braces?
These are very beneficial orthodontic tools to straighten the teeth, correct spacing defects, and fix bite problems. Mainly, they are used to straighten and realign teeth, and so increase the aesthetics of your smile and add to your confidence. They are also very useful to treat other problems like crossbite, underbite, or overbite teeth.
Why choose this treatment?
For years, traditional metal braces have been used for adjusting many dental problems in kids and teenagers. They are also notoriously known as ‘’metal-mouth’’ braces because they are visible and most noticeable.
Nowadays, with advanced technology, dentistry and its associated branches have made generous strides. Even the traditional metal type are much more attractive these days. Actually, they are considered as a symbol of wealth or material comfort in poorer countries, while in developed countries they are not as aesthetic because they are more noticeable and prominent when you smile and talk.
Because of the need for less noticeable, more natural and aesthetic solutions, clear or invisible types have been developed, with indeed, a higher cost. With traditional types, the most noticeable part are the metallic arch wires that passes through your teeth within the brackets. The arch wire must be strong and tough because it works as a backbone.
