Are porcelain braces really as good as rumors?
Braces are a safe, long-term orthodontic solution that can be applied to children from 12 years of age and older. Braces appliances are increasingly improved to both aesthetics and ensure the orthodontic effect like metal braces. Among them, ceramic braces are chosen by many people. So what are the advantages of this method of braces?
1. What are porcelain braces?
Basically, porcelain braces are not different from traditional metal braces. This system includes metal arches, brackets made from pure porcelain and specialized appliances. However, brackets made from porcelain are the same color as the teeth to help increase the aesthetics of the user.
Porcelain braces use porcelain material to make brackets
2. How many types of porcelain braces are there?
Currently, porcelain braces are divided into 3 types as follows:
Classic porcelain braces: Appeared around the 2000s, however, due to the undeveloped technology, porcelain is fragile, falling, prolonging the time of braces due to high friction. Currently this line of braces no longer appears on the market.
Aesthetic porcelain braces: Thanks to technological advancements, porcelain materials are stronger, less friction, and as durable as metal braces, so the time of braces is also shortened.
Self-closing ceramic braces: As the most modern method that brings fast results, automatic brackets slide without elastic to help increase aesthetics, easy to clean, and accelerate results.
In addition, the wire is also divided into 2 types which are:
Stainless steel arch wire: Highly durable, the ability to adjust teeth is very good, but the aesthetics are not high, clearly visible when smiling.
Clear nickel wire: It is white, so it is aesthetically pleasing, less exposed, but the hardness is not equal to the stainless steel bowstring, so the braces time may be longer.
Self-closing ceramic braces are the most modern method
3. Advantages of ceramic braces
- High aesthetics: Pure porcelain has the same color as the teeth, so when communicating with braces, it does not affect the aesthetics too much.
- Adjustment of many teeth conditions: People who have problems with teeth such as overbite, underbite, crooked, misaligned, sparse... can all be significantly improved thanks to this method of braces.
- Easier oral hygiene: Ceramic braces have a more compact and special design than metal braces, so daily cleaning is also easier.
- Limiting oral mucosal scratches: At first, when wearing braces, users often encounter a situation where the arch wire and brackets rub against the oral mucosa causing scratches. Ceramic braces with many improvements help reduce this situation much more than metal braces.
- Affordable cost: Compared with many other orthodontic methods, ceramic braces are affordable but still bring desirable results.
The biggest advantage of ceramic braces is that they are aesthetically pleasing
4. Disadvantages of ceramic braces
There is no single method that is optimal and has no drawbacks. With ceramic braces, you may also encounter some of the following problems:
- Bracket breakage: Many people worry that ceramic braces will break during use when there is a strong impact. However, with the continuous improvement of materials, now ceramic braces are not inferior to metal. So you can rest assured.
- Braces loosening: Even metal brackets can cause this to happen because the connection between the brackets and the archwire is stretched. As a precaution, you just need to visit the dental clinic periodically for the doctor to adjust.
- Discomfort: Any method of braces in the first time will make you feel clumsy and uncomfortable. However, with ceramic braces, this feeling does not cause too much inconvenience, after about a week you will get used to it.
5. How long does it take to get porcelain braces?
The time of porcelain braces is fast or slow depending on the condition of the teeth. Normally, for those of you who have problems with protruding, underbite, sparse, slightly misaligned teeth, the time of braces is about 1-2 years. However, if the level is more complicated, the time can be extended up to 3 years.
In addition, the most ideal and most effective age when braces are from 12 to 18 because the jaw structure is still soft, easier to change than the older age.
