What are lingual braces?
The term "lingual” refers to the inside (tongue or palate) surface of the tooth. Lingual braces are attached to the inside surface (behind the teeth) unlike other braces which are attached to the outside (front) of the teeth. With the braces positioned on the inner surface, it makes them practically invisible so others do not know you are wearing them.
Why choose lingual braces?
- If you are self conscious of your appearance and would not feel confident wearing visible braces
- If your job or lifestyle prevents you from having visible braces
