As compared with metal brackets, sapphire brackets are beautiful and appear translucent. These brackets are made of mono-crystalline sapphire crystals, making the sapphire brackets very esthetic, As they virtually disappear on patient’s teeth. Sapphire and ceramic brackets are a good choice for older teens and adult patients.
Sapphire brackets are the least noticeable on white teeth. Ceramic or lingual brackets are typically chosen for patients with teeth that have a yellowish hue. Often to keep the esthetic appearance of the ceramic brackets - or the Sapphire Translucent Bracket we use ceramic or tooth-color coated arch wires.
The tooth coated wires are available in stainless steel, Niti and also there is Round Tooth Color Coated Niti Archwires (10 Pack). There is also a Rectangular Color Coated Niti Archwire (10 Ppack) are used with Sapphire Brackets: Sapphire Translucent Brackets and Sapphire brackets tend to be larger than ceramic or metal brackets, but due to their exceptional clarity and smoothness they are a popular choice.
Another choice for Ceramic brackets is the self ligating type. They don't require color ties that often stain to be present. There is a clip on the bracket that is used to hold the wire in place.
Another factor to consider is a ceramic bracket with a metal slot. The science behind the metal slot is that it is smoother and more accurate than a ceramic slot, allowing for less friction, accurate movement and torque.
