Lingual Orthodontics

Explainer Video

Lingual braces, also known as lingual orthodontics, offer a discreet alternative to traditional braces by being placed on the inner surface of the teeth, making them virtually invisible from the outside. This innovative orthodontic treatment allows patients to achieve a straighter smile without the aesthetic concerns associated with conventional braces. Next, we’ll explore the procedures involved, benefits, risks, and why Dentiva Clinic is the ideal choice for lingual braces treatment.

Lingual Orthodontics Procedures

1. Initial Consultation

During the initial consultation, the orthodontist assesses the patient's oral health and discusses treatment goals. Impressions or digital scans of the teeth are taken to create customized lingual braces.

2. Bracket Placement:

Customized brackets are fabricated and bonded to the inner surface of the teeth using dental adhesive. Archwires are then threaded through the brackets and adjusted to apply gentle pressure to move the teeth into alignment.

3. Adjustments

Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to adjust the tension of the wires and monitor progress. These adjustments ensure that the teeth gradually shift into their desired positions over time.

4. Maintenance

Patients receive instructions on proper oral hygiene and care for their lingual braces. This includes avoiding certain foods that may damage the braces and maintaining regular dental check-ups.

5. Removal

Once treatment is complete and the desired results are achieved, the lingual braces are carefully removed, and any remaining adhesive is polished off the teeth.

Lingual Orthodontics

Benefits:

  • Discreet Treatment: Lingual braces are hidden from view since they are placed on the inner surface of the teeth, making them an ideal option for individuals who prefer a more discreet orthodontic treatment.
  • Effective Alignment: Lingual braces are just as effective as traditional braces in correcting various orthodontic issues, including crooked teeth, overcrowding, and bite misalignment.
  • Comfortable: Lingual braces are custom-made to fit the contours of the teeth, reducing the risk of discomfort and irritation to the lips and cheeks commonly associated with traditional braces.
  • Minimal Impact on Speech: While there may be an initial adjustment period, most patients adapt quickly to speaking with lingual braces, as the tongue typically adjusts to the presence of the brackets.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Lingual braces allow patients to maintain a natural appearance throughout their treatment, without the need to feel self-conscious about wearing visible braces.

Risks

  • Initial Discomfort: Some patients may experience initial discomfort or difficulty speaking and eating as they adjust to the presence of lingual braces.
  • Length of Treatment: Treatment with lingual braces may take slightly longer than with traditional braces, as the customized brackets may be less efficient in moving teeth, especially in complex cases.
  • Cost: Lingual braces tend to be more expensive than traditional braces due to their customized design and the specialized skill required for placement and adjustment.
  • Oral Hygiene Challenges: Proper oral hygiene is essential when wearing lingual braces to prevent plaque buildup and the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Risk of Brackets Detaching: Due to their placement on the inner surface of the teeth, lingual brackets may be more prone to detaching or breaking compared to traditional braces, especially if excessive force is applied.

Frequently asked questions
and their answers

No, lingual braces are mounted on the back of the teeth, so they are not visible from the front. This makes them an “invisible” brace option.

It can take 2-4 weeks to fully adapt to lingual braces. Speech and eating may be impacted at first. Discomfort and tongue irritation usually subsides within a couple weeks as your mouth adjusts.

Eating will require more caution and patience initially. Hard, crunchy, or chewy foods should be avoided to prevent damage to the braces. Most people can resume a relatively normal diet after the adjustment period.

Yes, lingual braces tend to cost more than traditional metal braces. The customized brackets and more complex placement raise the overall cost of treatment.

Lingual braces can temporarily impact speech and cause a lisp. This usually resolves within a couple weeks as your tongue learns to adapt to the braces.

Lingual braces are not suitable for every orthodontic case. There must be enough space on the tongue side of the teeth to allow bracket placement. Your orthodontist will determine if you are a good candidate.
