The popularity and clinical uses of ceramic bracket is increasing in the contemporary orthodontics. This article provides the clinician an up-to-date knowledge on the physical properties and clinical characteristics of ceramic brackets. It critically discusses the various aspects of ceramic brackets with regards to the composition, types, base characteristic, physical properties, enamel and bracket fracture, frictional resistance, bond strength, debonding methods, bracket recycling and… 
Frictional resistance of aesthetic brackets
The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the static frictional forces produced by monocrystalline ceramic (sapphire) bracket and polycrystalline ceramic bracket. Materials and methods: one
Enamel surface damage during debonding of ceramic brackets: a brief review
TLDR
This review paper has reread the effectiveness of different debonding strategies for CB and appraises the enamel surface damages caused by it.
AN SEM STUDY OF ENAMEL SURFACE DAMAGE DURING DEBONDING OF CERAMIC BRACKETS USING
TLDR
In debonding ceramic brackets, ligature cutter is the most superior technique compared to the other three techniques since it takes the least time to debond the brackets with minimal enamel damage and residual adhesive remaining on the enamel surface.
In vitro evaluation of a ceramic bracket with a laser-structured base
TLDR
The mean bond strength value, the adhesive remnant characteristics, the integrity of the enamel and the ceramic brackets as well as the Weibull analyses outcomes were highly encouraging during this in vitro screening.

TLDR
Debonding of these ceramic brackets with polycarbonate laminated base was easy to carry out, but it is possible that more debonds may occur during treatment than with the use of metal brackets.

Methods of Debonding Ceramic Brackets
TLDR
It would seem wise to obtain an informed consent from the patient having out-lined the potential problems, and to use the manufacturers recommended method of debonding each particular type of bracket.
