Lingual braces are one of the most “invisible” treatment methods that your orthodontist may have to offer.
While in standard braces the brackets are cemented onto the front side of the teeth, lingual braces are an extremely popular option as the brackets are bonded to the inside surfaces of the teeth making them invisible and unnoticeable to other people.
- They are an ideal choice for both young and adult patients who desire a more subtle way to straighten their teeth.
- They work exactly like traditional metal braces and help you achieve the smile of your dreams without sacrificing your looks.
- For most patients, these braces can make speech difficult, but over time you will adapt.
- People whose teeth overlap excessively might exert pressure on the braces when they chew or close their teeth together, causing them to dislodge. A patient must have a good bite relationship to accommodate these braces.
