Lingual Braces are almost the same as fixed wire braces, but attached to the back surfaces of the teeth thus invisible from the front. Lingual braces are suited to those who want to straighten the teeth without the use of visible braces.
These devices are almost the same as fixed wire braces, but they are only attached to the back surfaces of the teeth and are unable to be seen from the front. Lingual braces are suited to those who want to straighten the teeth without the use of visible braces.
An impression of your teeth is taken and then sent to a laboratory where brackets can be made that are a custom fit to your mouth. The turnaround time for this process is around six weeks. Once the customised brackets are made, the orthodontist can secure the braces to the back surfaces of the teeth.
Lingual braces are much the same as fixed wire braces, applying continuous pressure to slowly move the teeth into the desirable position. Treatment time for this is varied, and can take between 18-36 months depending on the severity of the teeth or jaw misalignment.
The same issues can arise with traditional fixed braces as those that are apparent with lingual braces, such as affecting speech slightly and causing some levels of pain. However, generally this only occurs at the beginning of the treatment. While the braces will be practically invisible, they are still a highly effective way to reposition teeth.
The lifelong enjoyment of having a great smile is worth enduring the temporary inconvenient and costs of braces. Lingual braces are perfect for those who are hesitant to invest in traditional braces, enabling them to also experience the benefits of having a beautiful smile.
Lingual braces can start from £1,500, but extra costs can also occur such as purchasing a retainer to keep teeth straight once they have been corrected.
