The key difference between these and the traditional version is that the brackets are placed on the side of the teeth toward the tongue, or the lingual side, as opposed to the front.
Pros of Lingual Braces
The major benefit to treatment by lingual braces is an esthetic one. Because the brackets are hidden from view, patients can enjoy the effectiveness of traditional braces without anyone knowing they have them. For this reason, many of the patients who choose lingual braces are adults looking to straighten their teeth, but almost any bite or spacing problem can be addressed with this treatment option.
If you are interested in lingual braces, contact ProSmiles Orthodontics to set up an appointment to discuss this option with Dr. McGuire.
