Benefits of Lingual Braces
- Hidden thus not visible that braces are being worn
- Bite opening and better anchorage control
- Less speech hindrance
Lingual braces are attached to the inside or lingual side of the teeth to allow tooth movements to be carried out while making them completely non-visible. This advanced method makes lingual orthodontics particularly well-suited for adults and especially appealing for adults whose professions keep them in the public eyes. No one can tell they are wearing these braces. Patients can enjoy the process of orthodontia while still retaining a natural smile.
Although the treatment is more difficult there are lots of techniques being used now which are allowing the lingual orthodontist to treat patients to the same standard as if labial appliances were being used.
There are several brands of lingual braces available on the market, older generations of brackets are larger. At BIDC, STb light braces by Ormoco is the internal braces system used by BIDC orthodontist for its orthodontic treatments. The STb light braces uses brackets that are ever smaller and whilst using the self-ligating concept.
Most people have some discomfort after their braces are first put on or when adjusted during treatment. After the braces are on, teeth may become sore and may be tender to biting pressures for a few days. Patients can usually manage this discomfort well with whatever pain medication they might commonly take for a headache. The orthodontist will advise patients and/or their parents what, if any, pain relievers to take. The lips, cheeks and tongue may also become irritated for one to two weeks as they toughen and become accustomed to the surface of the braces.
Lingual braces are hidden braces placed on the internal side of teeth. It is an invisible orthodontic treatment option that was once commonly opted as a braces for adults. Specialized orthodontist training and dental lab is required for lingual braces. Therefore, there are very few orthodontists in Thailand and around the world with the qualifications for lingual braces. At BIDC, even within our pool of orthodontists, there are only a select few specialists treating the lingual orthodontic technique and you will require an advance appointment booking if opting for lingual braces.
