Are Porcelain Ceramic Braces Better Than Traditional Metal Braces?
While “better” is a relative term, porcelain ceramic braces do have some
advantages over traditional metal braces. In addition to being nearly
invisible, they tend to be much more comfortable because of their smooth
porcelain surface. Patients report less irritation of the soft tissues of
their mouths with porcelain ceramic braces.
Porcelain ceramic braces also do not interfere with imaging tests the way
that traditional metal braces do.
Why Should I Choose Porcelain Ceramic Braces Instead of Invisalign® Clear
Invisalign® clear aligners cannot be used to correct every orthodontic
problem, which means that they are not an option for every patient.
Porcelain ceramic braces also tend to be cheaper than Invisalign®. In
addition, because they are not removable, there is no worry about children
not complying with treatment.
