Lingual braces are not your ordinary "tin-grin" appliances; they are attached to the back side of the teeth, which makes them completely non-visible. This advanced method makes lingual orthodontics particularly well-suited for adults, who often want to improve the look and function of their teeth without letting anyone else know about their treatment.
Lingual brackets are attached to the back side of the teeth, which have their own unique shape – unlike the front of each tooth, which is fairly uniform. Standard brackets are mass-produced, but each lingual bracket must be custom-formed to the unique shape of each individual tooth, providing for the ultimate in comfort and care.
