Lingual Braces

A quarter of patients who wear braces are adults. They are looking for a healthy, functional, and cosmetic smile. However, a lot of them avoid the treatment because standard metal braces don’t appeal to them visually. Adults who are working and others who don’t want to draw attention to their ongoing tooth alignment can choose from a variety of invisible options today. Invisible orthodontics is popular these days. Like traditional braces, lingual braces are attached to the tongue -side of the teeth, that is, the back of the teeth. They are almost invisible because they are hidden behind your teeth.

Exactly What Are Lingual Braces?

Clear aligners, plastic or ceramic braces, or other invisible orthodontic appliances are available on the market. Lingual braces are one of them; they are fixed to the back of your teeth on the tongue-side and have the same components as conventional braces. They are practically undetectable since they are hidden behind your teeth.
