Lingual braces have the same components as conventional braces, but they’re fixed to the back of your teeth, on the tongue — or lingual — side of the teeth. Because they’re behind your teeth, they are almost invisible. As well as that they;
- Effectively correct most bite problems.
- Can be customized to increase your comfort and maximize their efficiency.
- Can be a good option if you need braces but don’t want them to be obvious. Because they’re attached to the back sides of your teeth, they aren’t as visible as conventional braces.
What to expect:
- Depending on costs in your area and your particular orthodonticneeds, lingual braces could cost more than ordinary braces, and your treatment time may also be a little longer.
- You should expect some pain while your tongue gets used to the brackets, and you should be prepared for a slight lisp for the first few weeks or months of treatment.
- The best way to determine whether or not lingual braces are a good option for you is to meet with a specialist orthodontist. We can analyze your teeth and recommend the best line of treatment for your particular case.
