Clear Ceramic Braces

Woman with clear ceramic bracesClear ceramic braces are a practical alternative to traditional braces, offering the same smile-enhancing benefits without the noticeable look of metal.

Just like traditional braces, clear ceramic braces feature two important components: First, a clear or tooth-colored bracket is attached to each tooth. Next, we thread a wire through the brackets. The brackets may be made of a variety of ceramic and composite materials, but you will usually hear us refer to them as “ceramic”.

Care for ceramic braces is the same as with traditional braces:

  • Elastics must be worn at all times and changed daily in order to maintain a consistent force on the teeth.
  • Hard, sticky, chewy or crunchy foods must be avoided during treatment time.
  • Soreness is normal for 2 days following the placement of new braces and adjustment appointments. Gargling with warm salt water and over-the-counter pain medications can help to relieve soreness.
  • Braces and wires should be brushed at least 2 times a day and flossed every night before bed.
  • Special mouth guards should be worn during sports play.
  • If you feel any sharp pain or a sore develops on the soft tissues of your mouth, call us so that we can remedy the situation as soon as possible.
