With multiple teeth straightening options available, patients need to know what they are looking for in a braces treatment plan. While ceramic braces can blend in with surrounding teeth, there are certain steps the patients will need to take for the proper level of care. In most cases, we recommend this type of treatment for teenagers or adults since they can generally be more responsible than children.
Benefits of ceramic braces include:
The brackets of ceramic braces are tooth-colored and can blend in with surrounding teeth. This way, they are less noticeable than other forms of braces. Since the ceramic braces are clear, bits of food will be more noticeable when caught in there. Fortunately, patients can prevent this by rinsing and cleaning their teeth after meals.
Ceramic braces can take as little as 18 months or 36 months. The length of time will depend on the patient’s current oral health, the position of their teeth and any damage to the braces themselves.
Correcting crooked teeth or a crooked bite
With ceramic braces, we may also be able to correct more severe cases of malocclusion, also known as a crooked bite. By correcting crooked teeth, patients will be able to enjoy a straight smile that is easier to clean.
Easier time cleaning teeth
After the treatment, patients will be able to clean their teeth much more efficiently than when they were crooked. With crooked teeth, patients will have a more difficult time reaching all the cracks and crevices between the teeth.
Call us at 563-484-5202 to schedule an appointment and see if ceramic braces are the treatment you need for a straight and healthy smile.
