• Are Lingual Braces Right For You?

    Are Lingual Braces Right For You?

    So your teeth aren’t quite right. You look in the mirror and see misaligned or crooked teeth, you have gaps or some teeth that protrude out and others hidden or bent out of shape. There are brace options to fix every dental condition but one type in particular has been growing in popularity for some time now – invisible lingual braces.

    What are Lingual Braces?

    Lingual braces are similar to traditional fixed clear braces but are placed on the back of the teeth rather than the front. This means you, the patient, can use your tongue to feel the braces running along the back of your teeth but they are almost entirely invisible to the outside world. This ‘invisibility’ makes lingual braces the most discreet orthodontic option available and is why this brace option is now so popular with children and adults alike.

    Fitting Lingual Braces

    The brackets of lingual braces are customized to fit an individual’s mouth perfectly. Highly precise, accurate Impressions are used to determine the fit of the braces.

    Since the backs of the teeth are harder to reach, your orthodontist doesn’t have much room to work. This makes the fitting process more complicated which is why you need a specialist orthodontic practice, like Park lane Orthodontics in Reading, to fit your lingual braces.
