Lingual Braces At Park Lane Orthodontics
Here at Park Lane Orthodontics in Reading, we’re proud to offer a wide range of teeth straightening options. One of the best options we provide is the lingual brace, which fits on the inside of your teeth. We offer two types of lingual brace systems – the Incognito brace system and the 2D brace system.
What Are Lingual Braces?
Lingual braces are sometimes called ‘hidden braces’ as they are placed behind the teeth. They are a great option for those who need braces but wish to wear them discreetly. They serve the same purpose as traditional braces and other clear aligners – to gradually straighten your teeth over time, giving you a smile that you are proud to show off.
How Do Lingual Braces Work?
Lingual braces are a simple solution to teeth straightening.
A member of our professional team in Reading will take an impression of your teeth which is then sent to the specialist laboratory that will create your custom lingual braces. Your orthodontist will then attach their metal brackets to the back of your teeth while metal wires link the brackets together. This will then gradually straighten your teeth over time, taking anything from 18-36 months.
Incognito Braces Or 2D Brace System?
There are two types of lingual braces, the Incognito brace system and the 2D brace system. During your consultation at our practice in Reading, our expert orthodontist will discuss with you the best type of brace system for transforming your smile.
Incognito braces are generally used for more complicated or longer treatments to make them as cost effective as possible. With Incognito braces, you’re likely to see visible straightening and alignment in only a short period of time, helping boost your confidence at the very start of your treatment.
2D lingual braces are ideal for our patients who want their smile to look good throughout the treatment and might be self conscious about wearing braces.

Are Lingual Braces Suitable For Me?
Lingual braces will not be suitable for everyone and this will be discussed with you during your consultation. Any other oral health issues, like gum disease, will need to be cleared up before treatment can begin.
What Happens During Lingual Brace Treatment?
Our team of professional orthodontists start by taking a 3D digital scan of your teeth and jaw to design your custom brackets for each individual tooth. Over time, your lingual brace system gradually pulls and pushes your teeth into their desired position. You will need to revisit our practice in Reading every 6-8 weeks so that our orthodontists can monitor your progress.

Caring For Your Lingual Braces
Taking good care of your braces is vital to transforming your smile. Your teeth must be kept clean as well as your braces to avoid decay, gum disease and other issues that can interrupt your treatment process. Continue to take care of your teeth as you should have been doing before – brushing twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste and continue to floss. If you are unsure of how to floss when wearing braces, our team will be happy to guide you. Try not to bite too hard into food and avoid hard and sticky foods. We also would advise avoiding drinks with high sugar content.
