An Alternative to Traditional Metal Braces
Are you concerned about how you’re going to look with traditional stainless steel braces? Is your child or teen fighting getting braces because they don’t want to feel embarrassed when they smile? Maybe it’s time you talked to about clear braces from your Medford orthodontist. Ceramic braces are constructed of clear materials and are less immediately noticeable. Older teens and adults are often curious if ceramic braces are a good fit for them because of previous cosmetic concerns. It’s important to note that ceramic braces tend to require additional care at home because:
A: They’re generally larger compared to traditional metal braces.
B: They can be more brittle and prone to breakage.
You’ll find that ceramic braces are used on the upper front teeth more often than your lower teeth.
