Lingual

Working on your smile from the inside out

Lingual braces are small clear or metal attachments held by wires that sit on the rear of your teeth. The braces act as a handle on your tooth for the wires to move your teeth gradually and gently to their new position. Unlike regular braces, lingual braces are virtually unseen, while having the advantage of being more effective than the clear aligner method.

Lingual braces are 100% customised to match the shape of your mouth. Therefore the metal appliances are created uniquely for you. Lingual braces are a good option for models, actors/actresses, musicians who play wind instruments, and adults who would like orthodontic treatment without their braces being obvious.

Lingual Braces Advantages

  • Lingual braces are discreet with the brackets being placed on the inside surface of your teeth.
  • Lingual braces can be a good option for patients that want the discreetness of Invisalign but are only suited to treatment with braces.

Lingual Braces Disdvantages

  • Some patients will lisp wearing Lingual braces as the tongue may get caught on the braces and sometimes a change in speech can occur.
  • Some patients will find Lingual braces more uncomfortable than other orthodontic treatment.
  • Lingual braces are not suitable for every patient.

Lingual Braces Considerations
