What are Lingual Braces?
For those who are looking to perfect their smile by straightening their teeth but don’t want the braces to show, lingual braces are the solution. These braces are placed by the tongue and palate behind the teeth and are therefore a perfect cosmetic alternative.
The process remains fairly similar to that of normal braces.First the impression of the teeth are taken to create customized brackets followed by a specific process to cement them to the back of the teeth. Gentle,continuous pressure is applied by these braces to help slowly shift the teeth into the desired position.
This procedure can take anything between 1 to 3 years depending on the patient’s teeth and desired results. Since these braces are custom made and each tooth has a separate installment, it a fairly costly affair compared to the regular braces.
