We do not always inherit perfect teeth from nature, but in modern dentistry there are quite effective methods for correcting defects in their growth. One of the most common is teeth straightening with braces. Among the systems existing today, we would like to highlight ceramic braces – structures with high aesthetic characteristics that perfectly fulfill the functions assigned to them.
There are two main types of ceramic braces:
Ligature constructions are classics of orthodontics. They are fixed with elastic rings or wire, are effective, reliable and, importantly, affordable.
Ligature-free braces (self-ligating) were developed in the USA, and they reduce the number of visits to the orthodontist to a minimum and greatly simplify oral care. To hold the arc, small grooves with closing edges are used here, and the ligature-free ceramic bracket system itself is larger than the classic ligature one. The sliding clamps, which are equipped with the structure, allow much faster replacement of the arc.
Ceramic braces appeared more than 20 years ago and during this time have undergone many modifications, which in most cases determine their advantages:
Installation of braces is shown in the following cases:
Contraindications for installing braces are:
Installation of braces is quick and painless, and it only takes a few visits to the orthodontist. At the first visit, the oral cavity is examined. In some cases, some preparation of the oral cavity is carried out before braces are installed. First of all, they pay attention to the treatment of inflammatory processes in the gums and caries, carry out professional cleaning. If there is no need for treatment, a plan of further actions is drawn up and the approximate cost of treating disorders with the help of braces is determined.
The treatment plan is developed after the patient’s full-face and profile photos, a panoramic image of the teeth, and a teleradiography of the skull are taken. At this stage, the final cost of the treatment is determined, and during the next visit, the doctor will install the braces.
The system consists of individual braces, which are fixed to the enamel of the teeth with a special glue, and then connected together with arcs. The procedure is rather painstaking and requires a high concentration of attention, therefore it takes about 2 hours.
In the future, once every 1-3 months, the doctor adjusts or replaces the arc in order to maintain pressure, which corrects the direction of tooth growth. If the braces come off for any reason, the doctor replaces them with new ones. In some cases, patients may feel a little discomfort, minor violations of diction are possible, but all this goes away within a few days. The duration of treatment depends on the age, the severity of the bite pathology, but on average, the course of treatment lasts 10-24 months.
Our recommendations for oral care when wearing ceramic braces:
Aesthetics, hypoallergenicity, biocompatibility are the main advantages of ceramic systems, which, combined with an affordable price, makes them the number one choice for most patients, including those who have set themselves the goal of becoming the owner of the notorious “Hollywood smile”. They are suitable for long-term use, so they can correct significant dental defects.
