In a society increasingly driven by individual experience, customization, treatment discretion, aesthetics, and a “no fuss” path to completion, lingual orthodontics (braces on the back or “lingual” side of the teeth) are becoming increasingly popular for adults seeking the perfect smile. An orthodontic technique that’s been around for more than 30 years, but with its most recent development successes in Europe and Asia, a new generation of hidden braces and experienced clinicians are poised to fill consumer demand for the most discreet and efficient path to great smiles and healthy bites. Unlike variations of lingual braces used in the past, select appliances and technology in today’s world of orthodontics provide low-profile, comfortable lingual appliance options that take a very short period of time to adjust to.
They can accomplish results equivalent to traditional braces, but with the discretion that is truly in demand. Unlike clear aligner treatment (Invisalign), lingual braces have no limits in tooth alignment capabilities and don’t require daily insertion and removal – they are truly an “autopilot” for patients. Couple this with an orthodontic specialist with decades of experience and more than 2,000 successful cases using the technique, and you have a recipe for success!
