With more number of adult patients desiring orthodontic treatment, special aesthetic demands of the patients pose a great challenge to the orthodontists. These patients have professional and social commitments and cannot accept ‘visible braces’ even for a short time. To serve such patients, the orthodontic community came out with the ultimate aesthetic solution – Lingual Braces. These, apart from offering the aesthetic benefit, also provides several mechanical advantages.
One other advantage is if you or your child play a wind instrument or a sport, lingual braces are easier to adapt to than traditional braces.
Lingual braces can be more difficult to get used to than traditional braces because the positioning of linguals affects your tongue.
