For patients who want the results of orthodontic treatment without feeling self-conscious about wearing an appliance, clear ceramic braces are the ideal choice. They are a discreet yet very effective alternative to traditional fixed braces.
How do ceramic braces work?
Ceramic braces work just like metal braces, only they blend in with your teeth. Made from durable ceramic material, these braces use the brackets and archwire system to move your teeth into position. The difference is, they’re much less noticeable.
At Origin Orthodontics, we use the Clarity Advanced™ and Damon Clear systems of ceramic braces. The Damon system operates using self-ligating technology, one of the latest advancements in orthodontics. The brackets use a slide mechanism to hold the orthodontic wire in place, eliminating the need for elastic or metal ties. This makes the bracket highly aesthetic and more hygienic. The low friction system also allows your teeth to move more freely. Certain types of movements can be more efficient with this type of brace.
Are ceramic braces suitable for me?
Ceramic braces are based on the traditional method of brackets and archwires, which have been proven to get great results for patients. At Origin Orthodontics, we use ceramic braces to correct many orthodontic problems, but we can advise whether they are the best treatment option for you at your free consultation.
