Have You been thinking off getting Braces but you’re worried that the metallic look just don’t seem to go well with your style?
“Lingual Braces” are placed behind the teeth, rather than in front, and therefore offer a great cosmetic alternative for those who want their teeth straightened, without the Braces showing. Lingual Braces are the best option for adults who do not want to wear conventional Braces. Lingual Braces are the most invisible type of Dental Braces.
Your first consultation with your “Family Dentist” will include a detailed examination and treatment plan session.
The process for Lingual Braces involves taking an impression of the teeth, which is then sent to our Dental laboratory and used to create customised brackets. The process takes about four weeks and, once complete, allows our clinician to use a specific process to cement the Braces onto the back surfaces of your teeth.
Like traditional Braces, this product works by applying gentle yet continuous pressure on the teeth, to help them slowly shift into proper position. The treatment can take anywhere from 18-24 months, depending on the severity of a patient’s overcrowding of teeth or their bite.
As with any Orthodontic appliance, good oral hygiene is essential to ensure that gingivitis or tooth decay don’t creep in. Proper Dental hygiene should include brushing twice a day and flossing daily.
Metal Braces are an investment of your time and money. Moreover, the cost of Lingual Braces is generally more than conventional Braces. Being custom-made and using specialised technology, the associated costs of Lingual Braces tend to be higher.
