Compare 15 clinics

Lingual braces are a kind of dental braces. The difference between lingual braces and standard metal braces is the position – in lingual braces, an orthodontist puts braces behind teeth. This is a preferred solution for many people who are afraid that wearing braces may affect their image and self-esteem.
Lingual braces are not a new technique in orthodontics. From 1970’s on, lingual braces reviews were really good and despite initial difficulties today it is a popular teeth straightening method around the world.

Lingual Braces vs. Invisalign
Many people have a dilemma: they cannot choose between lingual braces and Invisalign. Looking at Invisalign and lingual braces pros and cons, it is hard to say that one of those dental braces is better than the other. In lingual braces, putting braces behind teeth guarantees that wearing braces will not be so obvious. Similarly, in Invisalign dental braces, one knows that they straighten teeth without being overtly visible since they are, unlike metal braces, made from transparent plastic. For this reason, both of them may be called as invisible braces.

Lingual Braces Candidates

All types of braces for teeth are recommended for the people who dream about straight teeth and they are past the age when it was possible with other methods. Throughout the last 20 years, braces for adults enjoy increasing popularity due to the rising awareness that getting braces is not something to be ashamed of and testifies that one cares about his/her teeth. Adult braces are standard in many countries and are not met with big surprise anymore.
Lingual braces are a good option for people who find wearing braces as something affecting their job life or just prefer their braces behind teeth rather than on their front.

Am I Suitable for Lingual Braces?

New generations of lingual braces are addressed to any patient who needs straight teeth. Therefore, they are available for anybody who thinks about getting braces and do not have any special requirements.

How is Lingual Braces Performed?

Lingual Braces Procedure:
Similarly to other types of braces for teeth, lingual braces procedure starts with doctors taking photographs, mould and x-ray pictures of one’s teeth. Then, doctors prepare an individual set for one’s lingual braces. Wire and other elements of lingual braces are attached to brackets, which in turn are glued to patient’s teeth. Sometimes before lingual braces procedure, it is necessary to remove some teeth in order to make a place for others during teeth straightening process.
Lingual braces procedure needs to be repeated every few months (so-called lingual braces review) – doctors need to control the process of teeth straightening by manipulating the wires.

Lingual Braces Risks and Complications

Lingual braces and teeth braces, in general, may rarely lead to some complications.
• Root shortening – some patients with lingual braces may experience root shortening as a result of having their braces behind teeth.
• Problems with oral hygiene – lingual braces, similarly to metal braces, may accumulate pieces of food and therefore support the development of bacteria. It is important to pay extra attention to one’s dental hygiene while wearing braces.
• Tooth Decalcification – this condition may occur if a patient with lingual braces drinks and eats too many sugar-rich drinks and food.
However, it worth keeping in mind that the occurrence of complication while wearing braces behind teeth is rarely rare and most of the patients getting braces will not experience any braces-related problems, especially if they care about their dental hygiene.

Lingual Braces Side Effects

Although generally, looking at lingual braces pros and cons, lingual braces procedure is a good choice, still there are some lingual braces disadvantages. Firstly, for the first 2-3 weeks patients getting braces will need to learn to speak and eat with their dental braces. Secondly, lingual braces may irritate the inside of one’s oral cavity since they are placed next to the tongue. Nevertheless, those lingual braces disadvantages should recede over time. If it is not so, it is better to contact the orthodontic specialist who performed the lingual braces procedure and get an advice.
