What are Lingual Braces?
Lingual braces sometimes known as hidden braces or incognito braces are just like traditional fixed braces in that they are attached to your teeth for the duration of treatment. But lingual braces have one major difference – they are attached to the back of your teeth facing your tongue making them practically invisible.
Patients in Chelsea, Kensington, Notting Hill and throughout London are choosing to straighten teeth with lingual braces because they are so much more discreet than fixed braces.
Just like traditional fixed braces, lingual braces can be used to treat:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Protruding teeth
- Gaps in your teeth
- Some bite problems
How do lingual braces work?
Customised brackets are made using impressions of your teeth and these will be attached to your teeth in a very precise way so that your teeth can be straightened. Wires will also be customised and applied to connect your brackets. The interconnecting wire forms the pressure that will straighten your teeth.
It is important that that the lingual braces are applied and fitted in the correct way because they are positioned in challenging places; the backs of the teeth in particular are harder to reach. For this reason, all of the brackets are usually cemented on to your teeth at the same time using a customised tray which holds them in place.
Once fitted, you wear your hidden braces for the duration of your treatment time and visit us at the Notting Hill Dental Clinic at regular intervals to have your wires adjusted and tightened.
