Ceramic fixture

The goal: to align and mesh teeth to restore an aesthetic smile and functional bite. Ceramic fixed braces are a variant of metal fixed braces: with transparent or white brackets, your braces become significantly more discreet.

As your teeth align, they will be sensitive for the first few days, especially when you chew food. To alleviate this problem, you can take painkillers.

For rapid treatment:

  • Don’t peel or break anything
  • So avoid eating sticky foods like candy, toffee, and don’t bite into fruits and vegetables like raw carrots or apples. Cut them into pieces before putting them in your mouth.
  • Don’t bite your nails, or your pens!

Brackets and wires are likely to irritate your cheeks and tongue: as soon as you feel any discomfort, apply the wax we’ve given you and reapply as often as necessary. After a few days, your lips will get used to it and all will be well! If the thread protrudes and stings at the back after a few days, it’s a sign that your appliance has already worked well. If you experience any discomfort, please contact us.


Dental hygiene:

Use a soft toothbrush (with a small head) and an interdental brush. With your brush, go under the wire while looking at yourself in the mirror. Brush your teeth 3 times a day after meals. Healthy gums are less sensitive, while poor hygiene can lead to cavities and gum problems.
