All About Lingual Braces Treatment

Did you know an orthodontist can place braces on the back of your teeth? It is called lingual braces treatment, and they’re a great option for people wanting to straighten their teeth discreetly.

Unfortunately, many people avoid orthodontic treatment and traditional braces because they’re worried about how they’ll look. But with lingual braces, you can get the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted without anyone knowing that you’re receiving treatment.

In this blog post, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about lingual braces treatment. We’ll also discuss how they work and the benefits of choosing this orthodontic treatment.

How Lingual Braces Work

Lingual braces are like traditional braces in many ways. They both use brackets and wires to move your teeth into their correct positions gradually. However, there are a few key differences.

First of all, lingual braces fit on the backs of your teeth instead of the front. This can be a significant advantage if you’re looking for an invisible way to straighten your teeth.

Second, lingual braces require special skills and training to place correctly. Because they’re on the back of your teeth, your orthodontist needs a precise understanding of how to apply them correctly.

Like traditional braces, lingual braces are custom-made for each patient. The brackets are made from impressions of your teeth and fit snugly against the backs of your teeth. For many people, this is more comfortable than having them on the front of their teeth. Plus, this guarantees that your braces will effectively move your teeth into the correct position.

Benefits of Lingual Braces Treatment

There are several benefits that come with choosing lingual braces over traditional braces or other orthodontic treatments. First, as we mentioned before, they’re much less visible than traditional braces.

Another benefit is that they’re custom-made for each patient, so they fit snugly against your teeth and don’t cause discomfort. And finally, since they require special care when brushing and flossing, you may find that your oral hygiene improves.

Caring for Lingual Braces

Lingual braces require slightly different care than traditional braces. Since they’re on the backs of your teeth, you’ll need to be extra careful when brushing and flossing. Because they’re difficult to see, you may want to use a mirror when brushing and flossing to clean every tooth.

You’ll also need to be careful about what you eat while wearing lingual braces. Avoid sticky, chewy, and hard foods that can damage your braces. You can also cut your food into small pieces to make chewing easier.
