Orthodontics with brackets is Ideal for children and teenagers.
Apart from the standard visible metallic brackets, we also offer two other options:
- You can opt for more discreet, transparent brackets; our ceramic or sapphire brackets which are barely noticeable to others.
- With self ligating brackets (SLBs), whatever material they are made of, the orthodontist connects the wire to the bracket with a metal cap that goes up or down to connect or disconnect the wire. We use the best brands of SLBs such as Damon, InOvation or SmartClip.
Unlike other dental clinics, at Ortodoncia Tres Torres Barcelona we use white arches or wires as they are the most discreet option when used with ceramic brackets.
Brackets can be used in 100% of cases and are equally as effective as other types of braces. Brackets, either metallic or ceramic, are very resistant, so this traditional treatment ensures the predicted results.
SLBs are highly effective and the check-up visits last 25% less time than with other treatments. Esthetic braces also have the advantage of being discreet due to their transparency and are recommended for patients with allergic reactions to metal, as they do not contain alloys.
In addition, when visible braces are used, veneers to fill holes after dental extractions can be inserted.
This is the most economical and resistant type of brace and particularly recommended for children and young people. It’s even possible to use coloured rubber bands on the braces. We highly recommend brackets brackets if you are between 10 and 18 years old, or an adult needing treatment for many different dental problems including malocclusions.
