Ceramic braces are a popular orthodontic treatment for many reasons, and here are 8 benefits you should keep in mind for you and your kids!
There are countless reasons why someone may need orthodontic treatment, and it’s important for all parents and prospective patients to know about the latest technology within the industry as they’re making their treatment decisions.
One very popular orthodontic technology is ceramic braces, and this type of clear braces goes a long way in terms of being more discreet and comfortable to wear.
All of us at JK Orthodontics are here to answer any questions about our many different treatment options, and the following are 8 benefits that you should keep in mind if you’re considering ceramic braces!
1. Ceramic Braces Are Much More Discreet As Compared To Traditional Braces
Ceramic braces may be made within the same type of shape as traditional braces, but the brackets are clear, small and nearly invisible.
A lot of orthodontic patients like this type of alternative due to how discreet ceramic braces are, and they really help out a lot in terms of aesthetics for pictures and even patient self-confidence.
So you don’t necessarily have to go through your orthodontic treatment with visible metal in your mouth when you choose ceramic braces!
2. Ceramic Braces Are Much More Durable Than Most People Assume
One of the most common misconceptions oriented around ceramic braces is that they aren’t as durable/tough as compared to traditional braces. Although it’s true that metal is a tougher raw material as compared to ceramic, it’s important for orthodontic patients and parents to know that there have been many advancements in recent years that have completely refined the overall durability of ceramic braces.
That’s why it’s always important to work with an orthodontic team that provides state-of-the-art ceramic braces, and when it comes to high-quality equipment/materials you can always count on JK Orthodontics!
3. “Colored” Arch Wires Can Be Used To Blend With A Patient’s Teeth
Ceramic braces will always entail clear materials, but you’ll also have to keep the metal arch wire in mind. A lot of people think of a metal arch wire and assume that they defeat the general purpose of having discreet braces, but you should know that you’ll have the option of utilizing a colored arch wire that does a great job at blending in with your teeth.
This type of arch wire helps ensure the discreet nature of ceramic braces, and some of these popular color options include silver, frost or white that really are seamless in terms of how it blends in with your smile.
4. Ceramic Braces Don’t Have A Detrimental Effect On Your Tooth Enamel
The latest orthodontic advancements have helped ensure that ceramic brackets are attached to a patient’s teeth via high bond strengths, so you don’t have to worry about these braces posing any kind of detrimental harm to your tooth enamel.
JK Orthodontics always utilizes the most cutting-edge bonding agents to help ensure the overall effectiveness of each patient’s treatment, and to make sure that no color changing occurs around a patient’s brackets during treatment.
So you can always be rest assured that your ceramic braces will always stay in the exact same place throughout the entirety of your treatment, and that this stability will do wonders in protecting your tooth enamel.
5. Ceramic Braces Are Easy To Remove When You Complete Your Treatment
Ceramic braces are always going to come off somewhat easily once you’ve completely finished your treatment process. You won’t have to worry about any kind of demineralization to your tooth enamel like we mentioned above when you choose ceramic braces, and this is partly because you’ll be working with an experienced orthodontic specialist in Dr. Karpac that always utilizes the very latest technological advancements!
6. Ceramic Braces Aren’t Noticeable Within Pictures
When you choose to get ceramic braces, you won’t necessarily have to worry about how your braces will look in your next big picture moment with your friends/family.
This is because ceramic braces aren’t noticeable within pictures! So you can be self-assured knowing that your smile looks great even while you’re working on perfecting it throughout your orthodontic treatment process.
7. Ceramic Braces Can Many Times Be Faster Than Line-M-Up™
Another very popular, discreet orthodontic treatment option that we provide is Dr. Karpac’s patented Line-M-Up™ invisible aligner technology. Although Line-M-Up™ is many times the more preferred orthodontic treatment for some patients, it’s important to note that ceramic braces treatments can sometimes be faster simply because the braces are always on your teeth.
Line-M-Up™ aligner trays are typically on a patient’s teeth for around 20-22 hours each day, but you’ll need to take them out to eat, drink and properly clean them. Many athletic Line-M-Up™ patients also take out their aligners during sports games as well.
The biggest issue with any invisible aligner system is that patients tend to take them out and then forget to put them back in, and many patients will even misplace their aligners and require replacements.
So what’s great about ceramic braces is that they do a great job at providing a discreet treatment process like Line-M-Up™ does, but you’ll also obtain a faster treatment time!
8. The Most Modern Ceramic Braces Are Comfortable And Don’t Stain Easily
Clear/ceramic braces were first utilized by orthodontists back in the 1980s, but these original ceramic braces had issues in terms of staining.
But what’s great about today’s cutting-edge technology is that ceramic braces are now more comfortable and much more resistant to any kind of discoloration. Of course you’ll still need to maintain good oral hygiene habits when you have ceramic braces, but we’ll always help you when it comes to oral health tips to make sure that your ceramic braces never experience any kind of staining and always look clean and healthy!
