1. What are ceramic braces?

Ceramic braces are a method of using ceramic brackets, archwires and rubber elastics to straighten teeth.

The rubber elastic has the role of connecting the wire and brackets into a seamless block, exerting continuous force to move the teeth to the desired position.

Ceramic braces are divided into 2 types:

  • Regular braces: this is the most basic type, using rubber bands to fix the wire to the braces. After a while, the elastic band will stretch and cannot maintain traction. The patient will need to come back for a dental check-up so the doctor can replace the wire.
  • Self-ligating braces: have a flexible automatic flap system that opens/closes according to changes in the archwire. Thanks to that, self-ligating braces can limit the possibility of the wire slipping out, keeping the force applied evenly on the teeth. At the same time, the brackets sliding on the arch wire will reduce friction, helping patients experience less pain during the braces process.

No matter what type of braces you choose, ceramic braces are still a highly aesthetic and effective orthodontic method, helping patients communicate more confidently.
