As the name implies, lingual braces are used on misaligned teeth that not only give you a serious aesthetic issues but create social disadvantage, as it creates problems during speaking and eating. For over a century, metallic dental braces have been a popular device to improve one’s smile and oral health by straightening crooked and misaligned teeth. Lingual braces are designed differently. They are hidden behind your teeth by the tongue and palate and, thus, offer a great cosmetic alternative to traditional braces attached to the front. As with all braces, the process of creating lingual braces involves taking an impression of the teeth, and creating customized brackets at a specialized laboratory. Once braces are ready, our orthodontist will cement the braces onto the back surfaces of your teeth. The treatment can take anywhere from 1 to 3 years, depending on the severity of a patient's teeth misalignment.
