Traditional braces are still a trend even to this day to address severe malocclusion, teeth gaps, and misalignment. However, the metal brackets affect how patients interact with others. Having to wear metal braces at school or work cause them not so smile so often. Hence, invisible braces or lingual braces are perfect for them.
Lingual braces are similar to the traditional metal braces except that they are attached at the back of your teeth. This way, your teeth are still being aligned to their proper position while gaps are being closed. In effect, you can go through your orthodontic treatment in secret, without the “metal mouth” look every time you smile.
Patients who choose this type of braces need to exercise due diligence in cleaning their teeth. We constantly remind our orthodontic patients to commit to their dental appointments so we can help them keep their oral health always in check.
