Orthodontic treatment is a great way to achieve the smile of your dreams. Fortunately, there are many different types of treatments available to help you reach the appearance and oral health you need and want. One option is lingual braces. Our dentist, Dr. Ami Desai, is happy to help you know a little more about the treatment so you can find out if it’s right for you.
Lingual braces are tough to see, which is why many people love them. Lingual braces are hard to see because they are placed behind the teeth. The brackets are cemented to the back of the teeth instead of the front of the teeth like they are with traditional braces. They have metal brackets and wires and they align the teeth with the pressure applied by your orthodontist.
Typically, treatment can last from 18-36 months, depending on the severity of the tooth misalignments. The treatment is also quite tedious, especially because the braces are a little more complicated compared to traditional braces. This means you might spend more time at the orthodontic office or more time cleaning and caring for your appliance than expected.
