Lingual braces, otherwise known as “invisible braces,” are very similar to traditional metal fixed braces, except they are fitted on the inside surface of the teeth, hidden from view.

The essential dissimilarity between lingual braces and traditional metal braces is that the metal brackets are bonded to the backs of the teeth, rather than the front. Like traditional braces, the brackets are connected by a wire which your orthodontist will tighten at regular intervals to gradually straighten your teeth.

Lingual braces are an excellent option for teens and adults who would feel more comfortable wearing invisible braces. They also are a great choice for those who play contact sports or wind instruments.

The treatment time is typically 18-24 months depending on your unique dental needs.

Lingual braces also require the same follow-up care as other braces, including wearing a retainer after the completion of the treatment to prevent the teeth from slipping back into a misaligned position.
