Lingual Braces

Lingual Hidden Braces OrthodonticsLingual braces provide a nearly-invisible treatment option. Lingual braces are placed on the back (lingual) side of your teeth, and therefore hidden from view. Imagine straightening your teeth and creating a smile you will enjoy for a lifetime, but not being seen with brackets or aligners!

Treatment with lingual braces is very different than any other orthodontic treatment and requires very specific clinical knowledge from the orthodontist. In order to accurately and predictably move your teeth, a fully customized appliance must be fabricated for your individual dental condition. That means state-of-the-art brackets that are molded and cast to fit specifically to your teeth and orthodontic wires that are robotically bent for uncompromising precision. Because of the necessary customizations, treatment with lingual braces is considerably more expensive than other treatment options. However, lingual orthodontics provides a unique treatment option that cannot be equaled with any other method.

Fortunately, lingual braces offer the doctor exceptional control in moving the teeth and therefore they can be used to help nearly any patient achieve an amazing smile!
