Lingual Braces


Lingual Braces at The Specialist Orthodontic Practice in Epping

Lingual braces are completely invisible because they are fitted to the back of the teeth. They are effective at treating even complex multi-disciplinary orthodontic cases. They are popular with adult patients who want to straighten their teeth but don’t feel comfortable with fixed braces on the front of the teeth.

What are lingual braces?

What are lingual braces?

Modern Lingual orthodontics refers to the correction of crooked teeth by means of fixed braces bonded to the inner side of the teeth. This means correct tooth positioning can be achieved without the braces being seen.

There is no age limit for lingual braces, provided the teeth are still relatively firmly fixed in the bone. These hidden braces are 100% customised to the shape of each individual tooth and are created by state-of-the-art technology.

Another benefit of lingual braces is that there is no risk of decalcification or damage to the front tooth surface.

How do I look after my brace?

During brace treatment you must pay close attention to your dental hygiene. In addition to brushing every morning and at bedtime we also advise brushing after every meal. This will prevent any food lingering around your braces which can lead to gum issues and enamel damage.
