Lingual braces are the most invisible type of dental braces, out of all the types of braces that are available. What makes lingual braces so unique, is their placement. Unlike any other type of dental braces, lingual braces are placed behind the teeth. Montreal International Clinic offers this great cosmetic alternative for those who want their teeth straightened, without the braces showing. Through lingual braces, you can now smile like you’ve got a secret behind your beautiful teeth.
Who makes a good candidate for Lingual braces?
Most adults and adolescents make suitable candidates for this type of braces. But it’s best to consult with our orthodontist at the Montreal International Clinic in Dubai to find out if lingual braces are the right choice for you.
What are the advantages of Lingual braces?
Lingual braces are the best option for anyone opting for braces, but it has its limitations. Some of the advantages include,
- Instead of having metal brackets bonded on your front teeth, these metal braces are customized to bond at the back of the teeth so they remain invisible when smiling.
- Lingual braces are a good option for people who play wind instruments or sports.
- No one will know you are wearing them
- It is a cosmetic alternative for candidates who want their teeth corrected without the metal look when they smile making their smile look “metallic”
How are Lingual Braces made and placed?
The fabrication and placement process used with the lingual systems is very different from traditional ‘front side’ dental braces. At your initial appointment with our Orthodontist, an impression of your teeth will be taken which is then sent to our dental laboratory where your customized brackets are created using CAD/CAM and robotic wire bending technology. The process for lingual braces takes time and sometimes up to 6 weeks and, once complete, our Orthodontist will attach it to your teeth and cemented into place at the same.
Our dentists at Montreal International Clinic makes it our priority to improve all our patients’ dental health. We offer patients with the option of Lingual Braces, which are a viable advantage over traditional front metal braces, in terms of both looks and comfort.
