About Lingual Braces

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are devices fitted to the reverse side of a patient's teeth (non-lip side braces) to correct and straighten the patient's teeth. Many patients choose lingual braces over traditional braces as they are not visible to other when positioned behind the teeth.

The braces are fitted by an orthodontist who specializes in treating the misalignment of teeth and jaws. Once the braces have been fitted, the patient will need to attend regular visits to the orthodontist, as the braces need to be adjusted.

Before Lingual Braces abroad

Patients considering lingual braces should speak to an orthodontic specialist in the first instance. The orthodontist will be able to assess the patient's problems and talk through a number of orthodontic treatment options. The patient must be available to attend the follow-up appointments to ensure that the braces are adjusted as needed.

If the orthodontist and the patient agree that lingual braces are the right treatment option, the orthodontist will take a number of impressions of the patient's mouth and design a treatment plan.

How is it performed

The braces are fitted onto the backs of the patient's teeth. As the treatment for teeth alignment is highly personalized to the patient's specific issues, the exact placement of brackets will vary between each patient.

Procedure duration

The Lingual Braces takes 30 to 40 minutes.

It takes around 30-40 minutes to fit each brace. Most patients will wear their braces for between 18 months and 2 years.

Lingual Braces
