Lingual braces are fixed braces that are worn behind your teeth. Being attached to the back of your teeth makes this brace virtually invisible. Each bracket is custom made to exactly fit the contours of your teeth so this course of treatment can be a little more expensive than conventional fixed braces. You may also find that your appointments take a little longer as your orthodontist will have to carefully adjust this brace to give you the results you are looking for.

It can take some time to get used to having the brackets behind your teeth and you may find your tongue rubbing on them for the first few weeks. You may also find your speech affected at first but like any brace, this is only to be expected and you should soon find your speech returning to normal.

Lingual braces are widely available and very popular with adults due to the discreet nature of the treatment.
