Lingual braces are a great way to straighten teeth discreetly. Lingual braces, also known as hidden braces or incognito braces are a type of fixed brace. However, unlike traditional fixed braces, lingual braces are attached to the back of your teeth, making them practically invisible to other people.
Patients from Greenwich, Canning Town, West India Quay, Canada Water, Stratford and throughout London are using lingual braces to straighten teeth invisibly.
One of the advantages of fixed braces is that they straighten teeth precisely, and this is true for lingual braces. Just like traditional fixed braces, lingual or hidden braces can be used to treat:
Book a consultation to find out more about lingual braces.
We will take moulds of your teeth and from this we will apply custom made brackets to the back of your teeth. These will be fixed for the duration of your treatment.
A strong wire is threaded through the back of these brackets. It is this wire that forms the pressure to get straight teeth. Your teeth gradually move into position as the wire shifts back into its original shape.
You will need to visit your orthodontist on a regular basis to check that your teeth are moving in the correct way and to have your wires tightened and adjusted.
Can anyone wear lingual braces?
Lingual braces are suitable for all patients especially adults who want to straighten teeth discreetly. Almost all orthodontic cases can use lingual braces, but in certain instances, such as those patients who have a severe underbite, lingual braces may not be suitable as there is a risk that the brackets may fall off. We recommend booking a free consultation to find out if you’re suitable for hidden braces.
How long do lingual braces take to straighten teeth?
Hidden braces can take anywhere between a few months up to two years to straighten teeth. The length of your treatment will depend upon how severe your case is. Your orthodontist can advise you about how long lingual braces will take to straighten your teeth.
Patients from Stratford, Canada Water, Canning Town, West India Quay, Greenwich and throughout London are choosing to get straight teeth with lingual braces at The Cosmetic Dental Gallery because:
