Get Ceramic Braces with The OrthoStyle Team
Ceramic braces have only been around since the 70s and 80s, and since then, ceramic braces have become highly popular due to their design and function advancements. Today, people can confidently straighten their teeth with translucent, porcelain ceramic braces. They have the same tensile strength and function as traditional braces while maintaining a natural-looking smile.
Ceramic braces work similarly to metal braces, as they’re composed of three similar components:
Brackets: At OrthoStyle, we work with the 3M Clarity Ceramic Brackets. They’re created using fine-grained ceramic material and deliver stable, consistent results due to their smooth bracket surface and small, low-profile design.
Archwires: The archwires work to help reinforce tension along the brackets and are part of the mechanism that helps gradually move the teeth over time.
Elastics: The elastics help provide bite movement and support for the archwires and brackets and are necessary for aligning the teeth into the correct position.
Like metal braces, the appliance is secured to the teeth with small brackets linked together with archwires and elastics. Over time, pressure is applied to the teeth to adjust the teeth’s position gradually.
If you want ceramic braces, then Dr. Mina Katchooi and her team will help prepare you for orthodontic treatment.
Through a straightforward process, Dr. Katchooi will design your ceramic braces through the following steps:
Treatment Design: During your initial consultation, Dr. Katchooi will go over your dental history and discuss your options for treatment. She and her team will design a treatment plan using our digital imaging system to observe the current placement of your teeth and plan your tooth movement.
Bracket Placement: After receiving a professional cleaning, your teeth will be conditioned to provide the best surface for securing your ceramic brackets. The brackets will be secured using dental cement and fix them into the necessary position.
Wire Placement: Once the brackets are set in place, the archwire will be inserted through the brackets and shaped to your teeth.
After completing your first session, Dr. Katchooi will schedule follow-up appointments to help keep your teeth aligned and maintain your oral health. If any adjustments need to be made, we can help make those adjustments to ensure the best care from our team.
