Lingual braces are a fantastic and increasingly-popular solution for misaligned teeth. Many are attracted to this method of orthodontic treatment because of its discreet placement on the back of the patient’s teeth (on the side closest to the tongue). Not only is this placement more aesthetically pleasing but it also eliminates any risk of damage to the front surface of your teeth.
At Stourbridge Dental & Implant Clinic, we understand that each patient has their own specific requirements which is why we take the time to get to know each patient before recommending any treatment. The lingual braces we provide are bespoke, allowing our experienced dentists to tailor the treatment to achieve your desired results whilst solving your orthodontic problems.
Lingual braces can be a great alternative to the more traditional ‘train-track’ style braces and are well suited to those who want to improve their smile in a discreet manner. Your friends and family won’t be able to see that you’re wearing a lingual brace, which makes it a great option if you have an important event coming up.
If you decide lingual braces are the solution for you, and our assessment reveals that you are suitable candidate, then we will need to take an impression of your teeth to send to our laboratory. We will then be able to create customised brackets which will ensure that the braces are securely fitted to the back surfaces of your teeth and will therefore provide your desired results. Once fitted, a small amount of pressure will be applied to your teeth to gently move them so they are realigned.
