Braces can make a difference to people of all ages. While more and more adults want the perfect smile, they also want to carry on with their normal lifestyle too. The invisibility of Lingual Braces can be important in work and social situations. If you are interacting with people on a day-to-day basis, Lingual Braces help to ensure that you maintain your confidence and act naturally. Whether that’s an important presentation, a job interview, a date or a conversation with someone you’ve just met, it makes a real difference. Lingual braces are the only truly invisible way to straighten your teeth consistently successfully.

There are a relatively small number of orthodontic practices that are equipped to provide Lingual Braces.

Lingual braces are the latest development in the treatment of adult orthodontics where customised brackets are attached to the inside surfaces of the teeth, making them virtually invisible from the outside. As such, they’re an ideal choice for both teen and adult patients who desire a more subtle way to straighten their teeth. Lingual braces achieve the smile of your dreams without sacrificing your looks.

Since they are placed behind the teeth you might need a few days to get used to the new appliance being present, but once you do you’ll be able to speak normally.  Some people develop a slight lisp or struggle forming particular words, but they soon adapt. Once again, it isn’t normally a big issue; it simply means giving your mouth time to adjust.

Compared to traditional braces, Lingual Braces are more expensive. The procedure requires specialised training in the development of customised brackets. Lingual Braces also make use of customized lingual brackets designed using the very latest CAD/CAM laboratory technology.

People say that once someone has looked into your eyes, the next feature they focus on is your teeth. So your pearly whites are pretty important when it comes to making a first impression.

If you’re ready to give yourself or your child the gift of beautiful, straight and healthy teeth, we invite you to schedule a private consultation today.
