Ceramic Brackets: A Clinical Perspective

Samir E. Bishara, BDS, DDS, DOrtho, MS

Pages: 61–66

As the number of adults seeking orthodontic care has increased, orthodontists have felt the need to provide their patients with a more esthetically “appealing” appliance. This perceived need has motivated manufacturers to create acceptable esthetic brackets, including ceramic brackets. The characteristics of ceramic brackets that are of particular interest to the clinician are described in this article. In addition, factors that may significantly influence bond strength and bracket removal are identified. It is hoped that this information will enable the clinician to debond ceramic brackets safely, using the available scientific information. World J Orthod 2003;4:61–66.
