Braces come in so many variations today, and there is a style to fit every need. Lingual braces use the same bracket and wire system as traditional braces, but the brackets are placed on the inside face of the teeth, making them much less visible. At MVP Smiles, we understand that the right braces for the patient makes a difference, we can help you find the braces that will fit your aesthetic needs while correcting your malocclusion.
Wearing braces requires a lot of dedication, they force the patient to change what they eat, how they clean their teeth, and generally even change your look. Today, we have choices, you can have the orthodontic work completed without the visible signs of braces. So many of our patients seeking orthodontic work want to maintain a professional look, which they feel is impeded when wearing traditional braces. We can help.
Lingual braces allow us to correct misaligned teeth, and improve your bite, with the brackets and wires hidden. To most people, your orthodontic work is invisible. Understandably, the inside face of the teeth does present a bit of a challenge, to combat this, the brackets and wire are customized to fit the space. This can make the placement more challenging and expensive than traditional braces, but if you are committing 1-2 years of daily wear, making the decision to have the aesthetic you want may be worthwhile.
Why Lingual Braces?
Patients consider lingual braces for a variety of reasons, including:
