I think that we have finally decided on the Clarity ceramic braces for my son. He is very self conscious and he thought they looked fine. Are they as rugged as conventional braces? My son is actively involved in sports (football, tennis, baseball) and I want to make sure that the braces will hold up to his activities.

Good to hear that your son has found a brace that he is happy to wear. Clarity ceramic braces are an excellent choice for clear braces. They look very good, much more discrete than the metal fixed braces, but they are as robust as the metal fixed braces. These clear ceramic braces work in the same way as the metal braces but the only difference is the appearance, as you will notice, the ceramic braces are clear and tooth coloured and provide the best appearance for conventional fixed brace treatment. I would recommend that your son wears a mouthguard for all contact sports to protect his teeth whichever brace type he wears.
