Sapphire brackets

brackets-zafiro-imoiSapphire brackets are a type of brackets that we use in IMOI for dental orthodontics. These dental brackets are like traditional metal brackets, but made of monocrystalline sapphire and are very translucent.

Sapphire brackets are very resistant and are not stained with food or bad habits.

Who can use sapphire brackets?

These brackets can be used if your teeth are too white. Looks like you’re not wearing bracks. If on the contrary they have a more natural color, then the best option will be the ceramic brackets, because otherwise the sapphire will stand out a lot.

Pros and cons of sapphire brackets?

The pros and cons of sapphire brackets are virtually the same as the ceramic brackets. Keep in mind:

  • Treatments take longer than metallic treatments. Sapphire increases friction with the arch, slowing the movement of the teeth.
  • They are stronger than ceramics, but metallic ones are still the winners.
  • As with metals, you should avoid taking hard or sticky foods to prevent damage. If they break, the bracket will need to be changed to continue treatment.
  • They are not recommended in patients who practice contact sports. And if this is your case, you can wear a sports protector made especially for you.
  • Although they are more discreet, they are slightly larger than metallic ones.
  • They can increase the total price of treatment.
  • Your orthodontist may recommend wearing sapphire brackets on your teeth that look more (the previous ones above above) and in the rest use metallics. This way you benefit from the advantages of both types of brackets.
  • Sometimes it is necessary that the arch is metallic and will look anyway. The white arch is the same but is coated with Teflon (which is white), but it still increases friction and takes longer to move teeth.
