Lingual Braces

Lingual Braces were first created to help cater for the growing demand in aesthetically pleasing dental treatments. For many, concerns lay in the fact that dental realignment, while necessary, required the application of unsightly metallic braces. Lingual braces offered up a new suggestion. Where once the metal supports central to the effectiveness of the device had taken a prominent place over the front of the teeth in the mouth, in lingual braces the same supports were moved to behind these teeth. This works to effectively hide the majority of these large metal supports from outside view, while maintaining the same level of pressure and support required for the realignment process. Lingual braces can be used for a variety of problems such as gaps, crowding and over or under bite related issues.
