Commonly Asked Questions for Patients who are considering Lingual Braces
These are braces that are attached to behind the teeth. They are very discreet as both the braces (ie: the metal attachments on the teeth) and the wires that are attached to them, are along the insides of the teeth.
There are several popular combinations chosen:
- Upper and lower lingual inside braces.
- Upper lingual inside and lower clear outside braces. This is chosen by patients who would like the discreetness of the lingual braces yet are seeking a more affordable solution to their smile than upper and lower inside braces.
The individual braces and wires are customized for your mouth. The braces itself look wide and this allows the braces to be made sufficiently strong yet thin enough to maximize tongue comfort and to minimize initial speech changes that are temporary.
