Orthodontics: All About Lingual Braces

There are many different types of orthodontic treatment that can help you achieve the smile of your dreams, and lingual braces is one of those treatments. Fortunately, our orthodontist, Dr. William, offers lingual braces in Midlothian, Ohio, which are just like traditional metal braces. However, these braces are also quite different because they are cemented to the back surfaces of the teeth instead of the front surfaces, making them tough to see for those around you.

This treatment can be very beneficial for many people. However, it’s best if you have longer teeth (this makes it possible to glue the brackets to the back surfaces of the teeth) and if you do not have excessive bite problems. The best way to find out if you can benefit from lingual braces is to call our office and schedule an appointment.

Lingual braces can help you in many ways. They can align your teeth and give you the smile of your dreams all without being noticeable to those around you, like mentioned before. They can also help you avoid common irritations that are involved with traditional braces (however, the tongue might need some time to get used to the appliance), they can be easier to adapt to, and they can make playing instruments and sports a little easier during the orthodontic journey.
