Lingual braces

Advantage:

Invisible

Disadvantages:

-Tongue is hurt during first week of treatment.

-Speech problem at beginning. In some treatments of adults it may last during treatment.

-Expensive due to high lab costs and lengthy appointments due to difficulty to work behind the teeth.

 

We recommend Invisalign when possible.

 

Our practice is certified for lingual braces since 1995(Takemoto), 20011(Incognito) and 2013 (Win).

 

Each bracket is custom made for each patient. Win and Incognito are the best lingual system available.
