Lingual braces allow patients to smile with confidence throughout orthodontic treatment. Placed on the back side of the teeth, lingual braces are completely hidden from view. Lingual braces are synonymous with Hidden Braces, Concealed Braces, Inside Braces and Invisible Braces. Recent advancements in technology have allowed lingual braces to be intimately contoured to the inner shapes of the upper and lower teeth increasing their comfort and minimizing their impact on speech. Once the exclusive domain of athletes, models, actors and musicians, lingual braces have become a practical and viable treatment option for teenagers and adults who have a desire to have comprehensive orthodontic treatment but who want to keep it to themselves.
Being attached to the inner surfaces of your teeth, lingual braces have inherent clinical advantages. These include:
- Invisible: No one knows you have braces!
- Reduced need for patient compliance
- Three-dimensional tooth control
- Can be used in almost all types of bite problems, particularly when clear aligners are not an option
At Forest Hill Orthodontics we use lingual braces for both comprehensive and limited orthodontic treatment. Meaning, we can treat all types of orthodontic problems with inside braces, or sometimes just the lower front teeth if they are crowded. Lingual braces can be an efficient, cost effective and esthetic way to treat lower incisor crowding.
