Sapphire braces

Are you ready to take a step towards a healthy and beautiful smile, but worried about your appearance during orthodontic treatment? Aesthetic braces are your saviour. With them, you will be transformed, and few will know what the secret to the change is.

The most popular aesthetic braces are sapphire and ceramic. Let us explain the differences between the two, whether sapphire fixtures are made of real sapphire and why they are called transparent fixtures.

Unique elegance

Sapphire braces are indeed made of sapphires. Of course, they are not made out of real gems but out of specially cut crystals. But this fact does not make them any less attractive. They look like jewellery and add elegance to a smile for the duration of treatment.

What is the difference between sapphire and ceramic braces? 

Sapphire braces are made of crystal that is completely transparent.

Therefore, they are almost invisible and the result of the alignment may remain a mystery for many people.

  • Many people may still be puzzled by the effect of the alignment. The treatment literally disappears against the rest of the tooth.
  • Ceramic braces are made of matt medical ceramics. They have a natural look and look like a natural extension of the tooth. The braces look tidy on the teeth and do not draw much attention.

The effectiveness of both systems is about the same. The main difference between them is the colour and transparency. Ceramics are translucent and have a yellowish tint, so they are only suitable for people whose teeth have the same tone. Sapphire braces are an order of magnitude higher in terms of aesthetics due to their transparent structure. This means that they adjust to the colour of your teeth.

Sapphire and ceramic braces are a stylish solution. Just as you choose a beautiful frame for eyeglasses, you can choose fine systems for treatment. However, it is important to remember that the main function of orthodontic appliances is to straighten teeth and correct bites. Health comes first.

Pros and cons of sapphire braces

  • Aesthetics. They are colourless, so they suit almost everyone.
  • Durability. Braces can withstand even heavy use.
  • Biocompatibility. Sapphire systems do not cause allergies.
  • Stability. Sapphire braces do not absorb stains or stains.
  • Comfort. Miniature locks are rounded and do not traumatise soft tissue.

One of the features of sapphire braces is their ability to shine brightly in bright sunlight. Because of their transparency, they shimmer when the light hits them, which is quite unusual. Is that a plus or a minus for you?

Sapphire braces only come in ligatures. They have a classic ligature construction with wires or rubber bands to hold the arch in place. They are a classic and have been proven over the years. Thanks to their construction and special strength, sapphire systems correct even difficult irregularities.

How is a sapphire brace system fitted? Stages:

  • Diagnostics. A doctor examines the structure of the teeth and jaw structure and draws up a treatment plan.
  • Sanitation of the oral cavity. A dentist-therapist treats caries and its complications, and A periodontist removes the inflammation of the gums.
  • Fixation of braces. The orthodontist glues a bracket to each tooth in its proper position and fixes the arch to them with ligatures.
  • Supervision visits. Approximately once a month, you have to visit your dentist
  • Every month or so, you will need to visit the doctor to have the sapphire braces adjusted and the arch replaced.
  • Removal of braces. The orthodontist carefully removes the components of the bracket system and then prescribes retainers to help consolidate the treatment result.

Unrivalled elegance

The orthodontist can tell you the exact cost of treatment only after a thorough examination and planning. The final price depends on the manufacturer’s brand of sapphire braces, the segment and services related to the initial period of treatment (diagnosis, application), during treatment (corrections, check-ups, photo protocols) and after the main phase of treatment (fabrication of retainers).

Many adults, let alone teenagers, do not seek help from an orthodontist because they think dental braces will damage their self-esteem and communication. Sapphire braces are clear proof of this. They restore your health and are more consistent with the notion of “jewellery” than other designs.
