What are Lingual Braces and How Do They Work?
Lingual braces are orthodontic appliances that fit up behind the teeth and therefore are not visible. The word “lingual” means tongue or palate and, when related to braces, refers to the inside surface of teeth. Lingual braces are flat, comfortable and practically invisible because they are attached to the inside of your teeth. They are an effective and cosmetic alternative to traditional braces which are fixed to the front, or outside, surface of the teeth.
Lingual braces are an excellent choice for you if you want your teeth straightened with minimal effect on your appearance; these orthodontic appliances will not be visible.
Why Choose Lingual Braces to Straigthen Your Teeth?
If you are concerned about the appearance of traditional braces that are visible, then lingual treatment might be the best choice for you. Cosmetic appearance is important for most of us; if you need to do presentations to audiences or clients and want to maintain a professional image while developing a great smile, a lingual system is a good fit for you. Our certified orthodontist, Dr. Wang, specializes in lingual braces and a number of other types of orthodontic braces, and can evaluate your needs and help you decide which treatment is best for you and your lifestyle. If lingual braces are the right choice for you, you can receive orthodontic care at our Surrey or Vancouver office.
