Ceramic wire braces are an orthodontic method chosen by many people thanks to their high aesthetics, good treatment effectiveness and reasonable cost. To know what this method specifically is, its advantages and disadvantages, please follow the article below!
Clear wire ceramic braces is an orthodontic technique that uses ceramic brackets and archwires and elastic bands similar in color to real teeth. The only difference between this technique and traditional ceramic braces is the color of the wire. The archwire is made from clear nickel that is white or nearly tooth-colored. Therefore, it is difficult for the other person to recognize the presence of the braces system.
The above appliance system is attached to the outside surface of the teeth, applying force to move the teeth to the desired position on the jaw. Ceramic wire braces correct defects such as buck teeth, underbite, misalignment… Thereby, improving the patient’s aesthetics and chewing ability.
One limitation of transparent bowstrings is their relatively low durability and fragility. Especially with the lower jaw – where the pressure of chewing is often felt, the archwire is easily damaged if you accidentally eat hard foods. However, this story belongs to the past. Today, modern technology has created transparent archwires that are more resistant to breakage, helping patients feel secure when choosing this method.
There are two main types of clear wire ceramic braces: regular braces and self-ligating braces.
With regular clear wire ceramic braces, the wire is connected to the braces with a rubber band. This structure causes the archwire to be fixed and unable to change shape when the teeth move. In addition, after a while, the elastic band will stretch and lose its elasticity, affecting the orthodontic effectiveness. Therefore, patients must periodically see the dentist every 3-4 weeks.
Self-ligating internal wire ceramic braces have many superior features compared to conventional techniques. Thanks to the flexible automatic flap system, this method allows the braces to open/close according to changes in the arch wire, thereby reducing the number of re-examination times.
In addition, using self-ligating braces will limit the possibility of the wire slipping out, and the force applied to the teeth will also be more continuous and regular. Therefore, this method has the ability to shorten orthodontic time from 4 to 6 months.
At the same time, the brackets slide over the archwire, reducing friction when teeth move. As a result, the patient will feel less pain and discomfort.
Below is a table comparing two techniques of regular clear-wire ceramic braces and self-ligating braces:
|Regular ceramic braces
|Self-ligating ceramic braces
|Highly aesthetic, similar to natural tooth color
|Bulkier and thicker due to the closing lid system
|Lasts longer than self-ligating ceramic braces
|Faster from 4 to 6 months due to the continuous and regular force acting on the teeth
|Feeling of pain and toothache
|More, due to the friction between the elastic and the wire when the teeth move
|Less, due to the sliding lid system reducing friction
Every method has its advantages and disadvantages, clear wire ceramic braces are no exception.
High aesthetics: this is the most outstanding advantage of this method. Because the brackets, archwires and elastics have the same color as natural teeth, it is very difficult for the other person to recognize them. Clear wire ceramic braces are especially suitable for people who work in jobs that require a lot of communication.
Absolutely safe: made from pure ceramic material, braces do not harm your health, do not irritate gums or soft tissue. At the same time, the surface of the ceramic braces is smoothly ground with cleverly rounded edges to help limit oral damage.
Good orthodontic effect: braces with internal wire ceramic braces are highly appreciated for their effectiveness, quickly overcoming tooth defects such as misaligned bite, crooked, sparse… Especially if self-ligating ceramic braces are used. , orthodontic time will be significantly shortened.
High cost: compared to traditional metal braces, clear wire ceramic braces have a higher price. At Da Nang Implant Dentistry, treatment costs range from 30 – 44 million VND. The price of braces depends on the complexity of the case.

Easy to stain: this is the problem that causes the most headaches when using clear wire ceramic braces. You need to limit eating colored foods such as curry, gac sticky rice… to avoid causing discoloration of the instrument, affecting aesthetics.
Orthodontics in general and braces with ceramic wire braces in particular require doctors to have good professional qualifications and a wealth of practical experience.

Braces are expensive Internal ceramic wire is the perfect choice for those who care about appearance or do jobs that require a lot of communication. High aesthetics is the most outstanding advantage of this method. On the other hand, choose metal braces if you want to save costs and shorten treatment time.
The answer is no. When performing braces, the doctor carefully researched the position and angle of attaching the braces, and used composite to connect securely. Therefore, if you follow your doctor's instructions and limit eating tough, hard foods, the chance of your ceramic braces falling off is very low.
