Lingual Braces

Mirror looking at Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are the same as traditional metal braces, except that the brackets and wires are adhered to the inside of the teeth instead of the outside of the teeth. Lingual braces are a great option for those who don’t want their braces to be visible.

Process

The process for lingual braces involves taking an impression of the teeth, which is then sent to a dental laboratory and used to create customized brackets. The process takes about six weeks and, once complete, allows our orthodontist, Dr. Lockett to use a specific process to cement the braces onto the back surfaces of your teeth.

Similar to traditional braces, this product works by applying gentle yet continuous pressure on the teeth, to help them slowly shift into proper position. The treatment can take anywhere from 18-36 months, depending on the severity of your overcrowding of teeth or your bite.

Braces As An Investment

Braces are definitely worth the investment, but lingual braces have special requirements - they're custom made, they cost a bit more and treatment tends to be more involved. However, the return often out-weighs the investment. You may have a job that would not allow you to have regular braces. You may simply want to hide the fact you are wearing braces in certain professions. Considering lingual braces is a great alternative for individuals who do not qualify for Invisalign.
