What are lingual braces?
The term "lingual” refers to the inside (tongue or palate) surface of the tooth.
Lingual braces are similar to traditional braces however rather than being fixed to the outside of the teeth, they are attached to that inside surface. With the braces positioned on the inner surface, it makes them practically invisible and provides cosmetic orthodontic treatment without the distraction of typical braces.
Why choose lingual braces?
If you are self conscious of your appearance and would not feel confident wearing traditional braces, lingual braces are an excellent choice. When you come in for your free consultation, the orthodontist will evaluate your needs and help you decide if lingual orthodontic treatment is right for you and your lifestyle.
