What are the Advantages of Lingual Braces

The primary advantage of lingual braces is aesthetic. However, the device does have other advantages. For one thing, unlike other aesthetically conscious alignment devices, they can be used on patients of any age and work effectively within the same time frame as traditional braces. From a recreational perspective, lingual braces are also more suitable for players of contact sports, where the custom fit grip of the design allow for the rough and tumble of the game. Furthermore, lingual braces also allow for the use of some wind instruments. Older patients have also praised lingual braces for the relatively small amount of maintenance required which mean little disruption to their day to day lives. Additionally, lingual braces offer the perfect solution for those patients that are sensitive to plastic and unable to find another suitable invisible brace solution.
