Lingual Braces

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces, also known as incognito braces, are gaining popularity due to the fact that they are completely invisible. They consist of brackets and wires, just like the traditional braces, and they are customized to fit the shape of each individuals’ teeth. They are placed behind the teeth using dental cement and the wires are threaded through them to apply gentle pressure on the teeth to move them to the desired position. Lingual braces are well suited for adults who do not want noticeable braces but also have complex orthodontic needs.

Advantages of Lingual Braces

Complete Invisibility: The best part about the lingual braces is that they are completely invisible making them cosmetically appealing. Though they are similar to traditional metal braces but are placed on the back of the teeth making them a more discreet orthodontic treatment. Lingual braces allow the patient to maintain their natural smile.

Fully Customized: Lingual braces need to be fully customized to give a perfect fit. The brackets are bonded to the back of the teeth with dental cement.

The Downside

While incognito braces have a lot of advantages, but you also need to keep in mind some considerations that may appear after you get them.

Initial Difficulties: Lingual braces may require some time to get used to it as the brackets are placed closer to the tongue it may cause some difficulty in speech initially and cause some discomfort. However, most of the individuals adjust to the braces within a week and the speech issues resolve on their own.

Difficulty to maintain oral hygiene: Maintaining oral hygiene with lingual braces can be a bit difficult than traditional braces as brushing and flossing becomes more difficult with the braces placed behind the teeth.
