  What are ceramic braces?


Ceramic braces, also sometimes referred to as clear braces, are braces which are made of a clear, ceramic material. They are attached to the front of the teeth in the same way as traditional metal braces; each bracket is connected to a tooth and connected to the other brackets by a wire which is continually adjusted to achieve the desired result. However, one major difference between ceramic braces and traditional metal braces is that because of their material, ceramic braces are more fragile and do require a bit more care. Ceramic braces are different from Invisalign because Invisalign is removable , while ceramic braces are permanent in your mouth for the length of your treatment

Advantage of ceramic braces 


  • Ceramic braces are less painful because they don’t irritate the gums.
  • They can have tooth-colored ceramic material, which works best for darker teeth.
  • Ceramic braces are strong. They usually don’t chip or break unless they are badly abused.
  • Ceramic braces are permanent and therefore cannot be lost.
  • When compared with plastic aligners, ceramic braces deliver a much faster treatment and have the ability to move teeth quickly

Candidates for ceramic braces:


Ceramic braces are more delicate than metal braces. Therefore, they are not suitable for all patients. For instance, if you have a severe bite imbalance, the pressure can put too much strain on the brackets. Additionally, ceramic braces may not be a good option if your top and bottom teeth overlap too deeply

How are ceramic braces fitted?


  1. You’ll need to have your teeth thoroughly cleaned first.
  2. Your orthodontist will glue the brackets onto your teeth, making sure they are firmly bonded into the correct positions.
  3. The next step is to attach the wires and any elastics or ties, and these will be adjusted to begin moving your teeth.
  4. Finally your braces are ready.

After care of ceramic braces

  • Floss and Brush Your Teeth Regularly: When wearing braces, you should floss carefully and often to protect both teeth and braces. Use dental floss gently near the braces’ arch- wire and floss between teeth with easy sawing movements use especial brush for brushing your teeth.
  • Wear Elastic Bands on Teeth Continuously: Unless your orthodontist gives you other instructions, try to wear elastic (rubber) bands on your teeth except when brushing. The gentle, but persistent force they exert will assist in realignment of teeth as needed. By wearing these bands faithfully, you may even shorten the time needed for wearing braces to correct bad alignment of teeth
  • Avoid certain types of food: For braces wearers, it is important to maintain proper oral hygiene and avoid certain types of food. Orthodontists also suggest diets which avoid sticky foods, since they can become stuck under the braces and possibly cause detachment. Hard foods and candy also should be avoided; they may break the bond between the brackets and the enamel.
  • Make time for checkups: Visit your orthodontist every 5to 6 weeks.

What is the average length treatment for ceramic Braces


  • The average length of time to wear braces can vary from one individual to another. Depending on the condition of the teeth and gums, the space available, the severity of the misaligned teeth, the distance which the teeth needs to cover and the cooperativeness of the individual to instructions.
  • However, the average length of time to wear braces is usually from 1 to 2 years. For some individuals braces may have to be worn for longer period of time up to 3 years or so and for some other individuals the time duration to wear braces may be lesser.

Disadvantage of ceramic braces 


  • Not recommended for extensive treatment. Though ceramic braces can withstand a lot, they aren’t quite suited for some of the more extensive treatments some people need.
  • Ceramic braces use elastic bands to hold the arch wire in place, usually in clear or white. This material is porous, so it can stain and become ugly.
  • Ceramic is less resilient or absorbent to shock abuse or force than metal braces.  Whether clear or not, ceramic braces are more brittle and sensitive to shock so that they can break, chip or fracture easily.  Most dentists would caution applying them in teeth that are often used for chewing food
  • Ceramic is harder than tooth enamel. If you use them on teeth that chew food, then you may be exposed to incidences where teeth will cause friction on them.

Cost of ceramic braces


Clear ceramic braces often require more visits to the orthodontist for maintenance, which can mean a higher price in the long-run. Also because of the materials involved it costs higher than metal braces . The cost of orthodontics  varies depending on complexity, type and length of treatment.
