The lingual Braces Procedure
For a completely hidden solution, Lingual orthodontics could be the solution you are looking for. It corrects misaligned teeth, using fixed braces, “glued” or bonded on the inner surface of the teeth. A lingual brace work in the same way as conventional fixed braces also known as “train tracks”, with full control and movement of the teeth, but is completely hidden and the only person who knows you have a brace is you and those around you who’ve been informed.
Lingual braces can be for everyone, if you have healthy gums and bones. With Lingual braces, if you are an adult or adolescent, there are individual solutions to individual problems. At 128 Harley Street Dental Suite, we first screen for any dental problems and check your suitability for these types of braces.
Advantages of Lingual Braces
At 128 Harley Street Dental Suite, we predominantly used Win GmbH for our patients that chose lingual braces. It offers:
- Predictable results
- Suitability for all ages
- Extremely flat design for improved comfort
- Can treat from very simple to complex cases
- It is German engineered and offers high precision manufacturing
The lingual brace is made of individual components that are “glued individually” to the teeth and is completely custom-made for you. A customised-wire complements the rest of the braces and provides the planned tooth movements.
“Train track braces” on the outside is not everyone’s choice and this is why many patients avoid opt for this type of therapy.
The appliance is custom made for you, so that each bracket and wire is made only to fit your teeth. Achieving an ideal occlusion for an adult patient is extremely difficult as often the natural teeth do not meet ideally, possibly due to damaged, extracted, missing or heavily restored teeth.
