Lingual Braces/Hidden Braces (on the inside of the teeth)
This brace system looks very similar to Fixed Braces however, they are fitted to the inside surfaces of your teeth.
Although Lingual braces are made of metal, they are completely invisible to any onlookers. Hence, they are also called “Hidden Braces”, and provide a great solution for those that are looking for invisible type brace systems.

Lingual braces tend to cost a little more than the traditional systems. This is because they are custom-made for each specific patient’s tooth and are specifically designed to act in a particular way. They also require a special set of instruments that facilitate the best outcome. Apart from this they also require specially trained orthodontist and team.
Since this type of brace system is on the inside of the teeth it may be quite intrusive in some people especially when talking and swallowing. Hence this type of system is quite case specific, which means that it works the best for specific situations and conditions.
If this is something that you would like to consider, then please speak to your Specialist Dr. Pourghadiri or Dr. Good during your Orthodontic Consultation, who will then advise you as to your suitability and the best way forward for you.
