Within oral health, orthodontics is undoubtedly one of the disciplines that has advanced the most in recent years. Today it is possible to opt for a wide variety of different treatments to enjoy a perfectly aligned smile. Something that has a direct impact not only on our aesthetics and quality of life, but also on the functionality of the mouth by improving our chewing, our digestion and even our language and social skills.
However, with so many options available, the question is obvious: Which orthodontics do I choose? What is the option that best suits my needs and my tastes?
Each patient has preferences, both aesthetically and economically. The duration of the treatment, or the comfort are also very important factors when choosing the appropriate orthodontic treatment.
Among all of them, at Pons Soria Dental Clinic, sapphire brackets seem without a doubt the most balanced option between budget and aesthetics.
And now more than ever, thanks to the welcome promotion to 2021, for which your orthodontic treatment with sapphire brackets has a spectacular discount of … 2021 euros.
But, let’s see if sapphire braces are the most suitable option for you.
High aesthetics guaranteed
Among the different types of orthodontics, we consider aesthetics that which allows the treatment to be imperceptible at medium and long distances, and almost imperceptible at short distances. In this group we could include invisible orthodontics with transparent splints, lingual orthodontics with brackets on the back of the teeth, and orthodontics with sapphire braces. The latter is the only traditional orthodontics (with braces on the front of the tooth, that is, the visible one) that can be considered truly aesthetic. There are other options much more unsightly than traditional metal brackets, such as porcelain brackets or plastic brackets, but at Pons Soria we do not consider themselves aesthetic. We explain why in the next point.
They do not stain over time
Sapphire brackets are made of sapphire crystal, a synthetic component that has the same structure and composition as natural sapphire, but more economical … and that is not only transparent but its color does not change over time. That is, they do not stain! Being transparent, they adopt the same color as the natural tooth, so you hardly notice that you are wearing them. In addition, they can be combined with white bows and ligatures for an even more aesthetic effect.
This is undoubtedly the great difference with respect to other treatments also called -erroneously- aesthetic such as porcelain or plastic brackets. The former are initially transparent and the latter can be designed in the same color as the natural tooth. But both end up staining over time, and taking on a yellowish or “dirty” color that ends up affecting the aesthetics of the smile. On the contrary, with sapphire braces you can continue eating all kinds of food and coloring drinks, which will remain unchanged over time.
It is the most economical aesthetic orthodontics
Once the clarification is made about which orthodontics are considered really aesthetic, the million dollar question remains. Which is cheaper? And there, without a doubt, sapphire braces win, obviously more expensive than metal or porcelain or plastic braces, but much cheaper than lingual orthodontics or invisible orthodontics.
And, at the beginning of 2021, even cheaper at Pons Soria Dental Clinic, thanks to our 2021 € discount promotion on orthodontics with sapphire brackets. Because after such a bad 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, we want to give you reasons to start 2021 with a big smile!
In addition, if one of your priorities is the economic aspect, we recommend you speak with our orthodontic specialists, as this type of braces can be placed on the most visible teeth and combined with metal brackets on the molars, which will hardly be exposed to view. .
Shorter treatment time
Another of the consultations that we receive the most in our clinic, with a long-term treatment such as orthodontics, is how long will I have to wear the braces? In this regard, both lingual orthodontics and invisible orthodontics with transparent splints are highly effective for certain types of tooth movements, but also slower. In addition, orthodontics with splints is not indicated in certain cases in which important modifications to the bite are required.
But what about the different orthodontics with braces on the front of the teeth? Here the treatment time is very similar in all cases, varying little. There are specialists who consider that orthodontics with sapphire brackets is slightly –although negligible- more
